    When do I have to use "that"?

    Hello,
    Once I learned that we do not have always to use that in such sentences.
    However, I have never understood it

    I know that I'm right. - no that
    I think that you should go.
    - no that
    All songs that I hear remind me of her.
    In my opinion it is bad that he leaves our firm.
    I believe that it's a great idea.
    - no that
    Do you really think it's good that you wear this?

    I've already written a - no that behind some sentences where I believe that should not be used.

    Cheers!
