Related To Friends # Speaking Section

Friends, undoubtedly play a very important role in an individuals life. Most of the times, a person is known by the company that he/she keeps. Keeping this in mind, IELTS speaking part I often consists of questions related to friends or friendship. Now, it is very rare that a person has no friends. However, it sometimes so happens that one does not thinks a lot about friendship in question/answer form.

To make you think that way and answer questions properly in IELTS Speaking section, here are some of the questions that can be asked in Part I.

  1. How do you mostly connect with your friends?

Friends surely play a very important role  in my life. Because of the double jobs that I have, I get less time for my friends, however, I make sure that whenever I have time  I do meet them. I usually don’t like connecting on phones or internet, I prefer meeting in personal. So, whenever we have to meet, we usually go out travelling or to our favorite spots. There are few friends who are far away, so we stay connected through digital medium.

2. Are friends as important for you as family?

Friends do play a important role in my life. I,however, don’t compare the two relationships. They are both equally important for me.

3. Do you think friendship changes with time?

I think certain changes do take place in friendships with time, and I think that happens with every relationship. But, in the end it all depends on us. I do have some friends from the time I was a kid and there are some who are no more my friends whom I just met a year ago. So, for me I guess it all depends on the bond we share. Other things can always be taken care of.
