Thank you very much Kirk!

I agree those person in the quiz who told that it is not better to tell always truth because tell the truth is hurts someone.So it is better to avoid tell the truth in some situation.

I dont think so

Hello everybody , i would like to talk about pigeon flying.
It's very interesting game when i see it. In this game number of participant could be two or more .All of them have a flats of pigeon fleet and standing on a different corner of the ground but not too far to each other.Then flying there pigeon simultaneously and after some specific period of time call them return back.The aim of there is that whose flat of pigeon is more powerful to break other pigeon fleet and bring other pigeon with them and return back to there position.The winner got all those pigeon and specific amount as well.

I also think that telling the truth is the best way sometimes, but other times it will became worst way. that is, it depends. I strongly agree with the one of these man's idea. the idea is that if it is the case of your best or close friends, you should not tell a lie because you fall a endless cycle by mistake because you have to conceal the lie and you have to tell a lie in order to conceal the previous lie. In other case, you might break up your close relationship. this is something to avoid. In the case of person who you do not well, you should tell a small lie to make your impression worse. it interpret your process to make close friends.

I think, Ever and for ever the best decision is say the truth. Because, telling small lies we are stimulating the dishonesty. By no reason: nor by love; nor by charity; nor by pain, nor by regrets, nor by hypocrisy, nor by being sympathetic, nor by much other things, by no reason, people should say lies.

That's what I think.

I think so, tell the truth it´s best, although the most people lie. We know do not want to hurt people, but this it´s not a reason.
Obviously we can not be honest, but we must always try. Is the human condition.
Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom.
Thomas Jefferson

I congratulate the entire team Learn English British Council , especially Tom the theacher

Hello! Tell me please why is the answer "He wants to go to Monte Carlo" in the section "While you listen" correct? Rafaelo wants to go to Monaco. They even didn't discuss Monte Carlo!!

Hello,

Monte Carlo is part of Monaco and the Monaco Grand Prix is held on the streets of Monte Carlo.

Best wishes,

Adam

Oh! Thank you a lot. I'm a bit ignorant of geography!!!
