Learn English Words and Phrases about Truth and Lies

As you continue to learn English you’ll soon realize that sometimes people tell the truth, and sometimes people lie.

In this English lesson I’ll go over some English words and phrases about telling the truth and telling lies, but I’m also going to play a little game with you.

For your English listening practice I’m going to tell two stories at the beginning of the video, and one will be true, and one will be a lie and you’ll need to guess which is which.

Don’t worry, I’ll tell you which story is true at the end of the video!

I hope you enjoy this English lesson!

⌛ Remember: Always watch the video three times. Twice today with English subtitles on, and once tomorrow with the English subtitles off. This will reinforce the English you have learned!

Hi Bob the Canadian here. As you learn English you’ll soon realize that English speaking people sometimes tell lies just like people do in your own language. So I thought I should do a short English lesson on some of the words and phrases that we use to talk about truth and that we use to talk about lies.

But I also thought we should have a little bit of fun in this video, so I’m going to tell you two stories about me and one of those stories is going to be true, and one of them is going to be false. It’s going to be a lie.

Hey Bob the Canadian here, welcome to this video about truth and lies, but before we get started, if this is your first time here don’t forget to click the subscribe button down there below, it’s a red button. Give me a thumbs up at some point during this video if it’s helping you learn English.

So truth and lies, let’s start with a couple stories about me. This will be good English listening practice for you, and again one of the stories will be true and one of the stories will not be true. So let’s get started.

Story number 1! Story number 1.

When I was a kid, when school was done at the end of the school year my parents would take my brother and I to my grandparents’ house and we would live with my grandparents for one month. Usually we would help my grandfather with some chores around the yard, and we also helped him with his big garden. And we would help my grandmother with some house cleaning tasks. So we would help my grandparents inside the house and inside outside the house and we would live there for one month. My brother loved it, but I did not. So one month every summer we did that for a few years, it was for the most part, I think enjoyable.

So that was story number 1, you don’t know if it was true or if it was a lie yet, but here’s story number 2.

When I was a kid at 9 o’clock at night my sister had to go from the house to the barn and she had to feed the cows their last feeding of the day. And in our yard there was a large tree. And when my sister went to the barn sometimes I would hide behind the tree and when she came back from the barn in the dark I would jump out and I would yell, “Boo!”, to scare her. She didn’t really like that very much.

So that was story number 2. You need to decide now which of those two stories is true and which is a lie and I will tell you in just a couple minutes.

So let’s talk though, let’s have a little English lesson here, about the truth and about lies in English. And let’s start with the truth.
