I think that if you had the enough evidence of it you should tell him. But if you aren't complete sure just tell him that you find her with someone else that look like if they are childhood friends.

At first, I think I should figure out is that really true that my friend's boyfriend or girlfriend are cheating on him or her(either I will have the same situation as in the video and feel awkward) And if it turns out to be true, I'd tell, of course.

I've found out that there was a different phrasel verb in this lesson. In the video the speaker said "messing about" but in the "Practise your phrasel verbs- gap fill" it turns to "messing around". Is the meaning of these two phrasel verbs difference?

Hi Yashachi! Thanks for pointing this out. We didn't mean to confuse you! 'Messing about' and 'messing around' both mean exactly the same thing. We'll have a good look at this page and see if it needs updating to make it clearer. Thanks and best wishes, Joanna (LearnEnglish Teens team)

Hi English Team,
I have a question that is not relate to the lesson: what is the different between "some time" and "sometimes"? I'm quite confused about that. Thank you for your assistant.

OK, let's see ... 'Sometimes' means occasionally. It can tell people how regularly or how often you do something.
I don't like swimming in the sea but I go to the pool sometimes.
I like reading in bed but sometimes I'm so tired I go straight to sleep.


'Some time' means a period of time. It is often used to suggest a long period of time. 
We've been thinking about moving house for some time.
This homework is quite complicated so it will take some time.

I hope that makes things a bit clearer! :) Joanna (LearnEnglish Teens team)

I most probably would tell my friend. But after confirming, of course. Who wants to get into a row because of some dumb misunderstanding? :)))

Hi Elsa. I might say 'without getting into a row' or 'without it turning into a row'. :)

Yes, that's true.
Why can't your friend trust you? Maybe it's because you guys might not have good communications. Sometimes boys believe that they can get trust without words; it's true, so if a mis-trust happens, you need to talk with each other w/o getting afraid of a row.
Misunderstanding ought to be understood in your trust. :))
Do you all think so??

Of course you should tell them! They might be willing to forgive them but them not knowing will make it all worse. They at least have a right to know about it.

Of course! He/she should know what happen. But I also advise him/her to find out the truth before deciding to do anything, or he/she will regret very badly about it.

You should tell them because your friend should know everything. Whether you do not say to him or to her they will not trust you anymore. It will have a negative on the relationship with your friend.
