  3. Hello,
    Megan’s questions:

    “1.How important is honesty for you?

    2.a.Why is it so difficult to be honesty at time?
    2.b. Why do you think it’s so difficult to be honest at time?
    2.c. What are some reasons that people find it difficult to be honest?
    2.d.Why do people find it difficult to be honest?
    2.e. I think this is a difficult question for people -when I am asking – when I am asking some reasons some reason that you may be honest with someone? Example:
    -Because you don’t want to hurt someone’s feeling.
    -Because you don’t want that someone judges you.
    - Maybe there are people you don’t know very well?
    -You like something that but most people don’t like that.

    3.a. Why do people choose to be dishonest.
    3.b. What do you think some other reasons that should be dishonest.

    4.a. How do you feel if somebody is lying to you?
    4.b.How do you feel if somebody lies to you?”

    What I wanted to say the key-word or key-sentence:
    It takes two to make a bargain.

    You have to know not only yourself but the other people’s personality for that you could be honest with him/her. There are people who don’t tolerate the honesty in this case this proverb becomes true.
    Tell the truth and your head will be broken.

    Many thanks for Megan and Torsten. These speaking sessions are very useful. To answer immediately an English question isn’t a piece of cake.

    Regards:
    Kati Svaby

    • hi…Svaby.

      I’m Rinson Gultom, come from Indonesia, I live in Maluku island, one of thousand lands in my country.

      Nice regards….

  4. Hello Megan,

    I tried to write your questions of the second record.

    1.a. Do you find it is easy to tell if someone’s lying to you?
    1.b. Is it easy for you to see someone is telling a lie, a fucking someone is telling a lie. Can you easily figure out or that’s taking you time?

    -I think I need little time, I have to know the person very well and if I know him very well then I can usually figure out that he is not completely honest. If I don’t know him very well, it takes me a little time, I have to watch what they are talking about on daily basis, how they are talking about kinds of things, if I find their intensity – what they say – so I can be little bit observed when we are talking, but takes me time. I voice I had a little bit global time when I believe-you know -telling the truth so have to keep my minding to pay attention otherwise -you know -you amazed somebody attributing very bad.

    2.a.So, how often do you tell little white lie?
    -This is something like -you know – if your friend asks you these jeans make you fat, did you like diner, -really didn’t like it,it is disgusting but really what its flavour; or somebody guesses you didn’t really like it, white lies like this?
    2.b.Kati,you tell very many little white lies?
    2.c.Why the white lie -the very small, you said -you know ? you?
    Mm,Mm,Yeah,there is easy to forget you.
    2.d. But do you say them very often?
    2.e. Amy, do you tell many white lies?
    2.f. Mujibur, do you tell very many little white lies?
    (We had some problem with the connection)
    2.g.Nothing you are following the way little bit Mujibur you are telling your boss light cake?
    3.a. Kati, what do you like to eat most in winter?
    3.b. What kind of food do you like to eat in winter?
    (I told my diner)
    -Yummy.
    -It sounds very good.
    (I told I would send the recipe)
    I appreciate the recipe.
    3.c. Mujibur, what do you like to eat in colder months.
    -Now I am hungry for the best time for diner.
    I should…never…about making mistakes when you were speaking because of hard of learning.
    I spent half yesterday speaking Dutch – because I am volunteer of that shooting club – for training even, and I make so many mistakes when I am speaking Dutch. I was speaking to eventual people who didn’t even I know, I was little intimidated because the Dutch have formally speaking as well, when I kept having reminded myself no formal speech up these people…/here I didn’t understand perhaps you spoke about informal language, and you said you wouldn’t be stupid and you can confidently use your formal language./

    Dear Megan, I am sorry if I misunderstood something, please tell me the truth.
    Where I put … (three points) I didn’t understand 2 words. and I didn’t understand the last sentence.
    Many thanks:
    Take care:
    Kati
