whenever i want to go out i usually tell my parents that i go to school...and my parent believe me

it's really a good site to learn english everybody can learn english easily by regular practice

I like her honesty and she told the truth and I think its a good impact on your boss when you tell the truth..

It is really nice to find such a good website to learn English. I think lie is necessary sometimes when it makes your friend or people who you love feel better.

Most people think that lie is evil. But unfortunately in real life we face it quite often. Even there are professions that supposed lie. For example: politician, spy, advertiser.

Hi all,
Im Van, Im From VietNam, Nice to meet you, all!

Hello, LearnEnglisnTeam!
I can't attach to its place answer "I'm sorry Carolina, but I can't....." in exercizes on tab 4. May be because the phrase too long.

Hello krig,

Thanks for telling us about this – I can't get it to work, either. We're looking into it and will fix it as soon as we can.

Thanks again!

Best wishes,

I am always tell the half truth, such as when I dislike my job, ill tell my boss that I have some business to do in other states , for the reason of leaving , I cant continue this job. but the truth is that the business is just I have found another job. I cant tell him the truth , I don't want to hurt him, becuz I know he likes me.
