'To be honest' is a set phrase meaning 'to tell you the truth' and is used to introduce an admission or confession.

open is more like thinking outside from the common thought
over is beyond the limit
honest is a self attitude
correct is change the wrong one into the right one

Correct me if I am wrong. By the way, i have a question, why we cannot use open? it's quite common in daily usage.

Thank you

Hi Torsten,
I have just done the test, there are only 4 correct sentences. It's so bad so I have to try to do your lessons frequently.
Thank you so much.

Hi Torsten,

" I've had a few problems recently."
