I strongly believe that actions speak louder than words. Because when a person do something, everybody who is around will judge the results of the action and will conect the action to the person who did it. One good example of it is the politician who is involved in a political scandal. Regardeless the politician can proove his inocence, the most of people will conect the politician's image to the escandal, and maybe don't support him in the next election process.

Who uderstood me, please leave this room right know and go to the new room where the test will be placed". After the woman left the room, only 3 candidates went to the room 1546, at the 5th floor.
By this exemple, is very easy to understand how the actions talks louder than words. Because, although all the candidates sad that they really spoke english, only 3 of them really...
