It might be better to express a negative opinion if that gives you more to say.

What would you do if you were asked in an interview to talk about how you feel about your hometown if in fact you really disliked living there?

Some people might think that by being truthful in this situation and giving a negative answer that this would not be the right thing to do and instead you should lie and talk about how you love living there to give a more positive sounding answer.

Actually, truthfulness is not important and neither is giving a negative opinion of something. The important thing is that you have something to express. If you have more to say by being truthful, even if it is expressing a negative opinion, then that is what you should talk about.

It would be much better to say “Actually I don’t really like my hometown….” and follow it up with your reasons for disliking it than to say “I like my hometown…” and then struggle to find anything to say.

In this video you will see how Joao deals with this situation in the best way.

very nice .i like him . nice speak.

hello, yes the truth is a good thing, but sometime it is painful and boring for the listener.
for example if you don't like your wife, if some person ask you about. if you say all negative the examiner or listener will hate you.

It's better to say the truth , but in a nice way , Gaoe says that his colleagues heat him , and he heats them too , that's sounds not good

This video is very interesting.

A nice video ,thank you

is good tell the truth

that was really helpful

Telling the first lie forces you to go for the second one ,and then the third one comes ,and the fourth one ,and so on. That's where you get confused. It sometimes gets so complicated for you to wrap up your words,your brain hangs,and you get caught ,,red handed of course. Tell the truth. It always sets you free,and keeps you going on,helps you to make a very good result.

All these videos are so helpful, thanks to all who organized such amazing and funny examples. i really enjoyed and learned a lot from all of them. Thank you :)
