Do you have a lot of friends?
Not a lot, but I have a few very close friends … I think it is better to have one reliable friend that a thousand fair-weather friends… Although it’s not easy to meet someone you have a lot in common with, I think managed to do it.
How often do you see your friends?
As often as I can… We enjoy each other’s company, so we see each other almost daily… What’s more, we live very close to each other, so it’s easy for us to meet up.
Is there anything special about your friends?
Oh, that’s an interesting question… I guess there are lot of things… For instance, my best friend can draw unbelievable art, good enough to sell. And my other friend is really keen on cooking… But most importantly, they are people, who are near and dear to my heart.
For how long do you know them?
I’ve known my friends since my childhood… We’ve been through thick and thin together… Probably that’s why we’re so close now.
Now, have a look at the card and prepare a monologue.
Describe your friend. You should say:
- Who is he/she
- When did you meet
- Why is he/she so close to you
and say what do you like about your friend the most
I would like to talk about my friend William… I wouldn’t say he’s my best friend, but I would rather call him as a good friend of mine… I met him last year at local sports centre. It turned out that we were studying at the same college… Then, miraculously, I got into the same class with him and we got on like a house on fire… He’s the sweetest person I’ve ever met! He’s smart, helpful, caring, funny and somehow good-looking… And most importantly, we have a lot in common and he understands me as nobody else does.
Do you think friendship is important nowadays?
Yes, certainly! Without my friends I’d be very sad and lonely, but they cheer me up and help in every way possible… Of course, all relationships have their ups and downs, but we should definitely try not to lose touch with our friends.
What do you think is the best time to get new friends?
Hmm… Probably, the best time to get new friends is your school and university years. You have many possibilities to get in touch with different people… And it is easier to find friends with similar interests…
Is it important to stay in touch with your friends throughout the years?
Yes, it very important not to lose touch with your friends… Surely, everyone changes and even close friends can drift apart. But, in my opinion, friends are your second family and we should highly appreciate them.
