Sample 1 Describe a Friend From Your Childhood
Friends are very necessary for the outlet of emotions and for inspiration. With the grace of god, I have a childhood friend who is still with me, and he is none other than my husband. We studied together, and we were in the same class.
We used to help each other. I was good at studying, and he was good at sports. So we both helped each other in our weak areas. This thing brought us closer to each other and we developed a friendship.
I would like to do a lot of things with my friend. He plays football well, and we tried to do paragliding together, and he motivated me and removed my fear of heights. I enjoyed it a lot. I would love to do this adventurous activity again with him in the near future.
Moreover, I would like to play chess and ludo, which we enjoy a lot. I like him for his inspiration as well as his care. I never feel bored in his company because he entertains me by cracking jokes as well as narrating some inspirational stories.
Sample 2 Describe a Friend From Your Childhood
I had many friends in my childhood, but here I would like to talk about my best friend, Shyam, because he is still my best friend. He is 20 years old and very handsome.
He has dark brown eyes and a dimple on his chin. We have been friends since our school days. I met him when I was in the 4th class in the Govt. Primary School where I studied.
At that time, he used to be very chubby and had curly hair. Now he is very lean and thin and has short straight hair. I remember, I used to be very shy and never used to go to the teachers with my problems. But, he never hesitated to speak to the teachers or the principal. In fact, he used to represent the whole class if we had any problems and needed to talk to our school principal.
He has no glossophobia and every year, he used to represent the School in debates and declamation contests and he won many trophies for the School. He always used to be selected as the monitor of the class. In college, now he heads the students union.
He speaks so well whenever he talks on any subject that people listen to him. He can bind his audience very well. He is very disciplined, and he always used to encourage other students to be punctual. He used to be very good at studies also. He was always in the top five students in the class.
I really like to spend my time with him. I like him because he is an honest and straightforward person. He has a very good sense of humour.
Whenever I was in trouble, he used to come and help me. He tried to be very understanding and never fought with me. In class, I was weak at maths, and he used to help me. I had very bad handwriting, and he helped me to improve my handwriting also.
He is a very loving, caring and affectionate person. So, he became a very intimate friend. Now also he lives near my house and we spend our evenings together. We go to the movies together, go shopping together and even play together.
Part 3 Questions Describe a Friend From Your Childhood
Question 1:- How do people make new friends?
Answer 1:- People make new friends by scrolling a lot over the internet or visiting Facebook, Instagram and many other social apps which connect them with the people of their country as well as other nations.
Answer 2:- I think friends are essential in our life. People are more likely to have new friends in their life. Everyone gets new friends automatically from childhood itself, even from the neighbours as well as in past School and college times. It is very easy to make friends with others. By continuing talks and sharing things, we will make new friends, and they will be an asset in our life.
Question 2:- What do you think makes people have a long friendship?
Answer 1:- I think trust, care and flexibility in behaviour make a friendship in the long run. People understand each other, and if they have any issues, then they try to solve them and become friends again.
Answer 2:- Well, trust and interest unite friends and establish lasting friendships. Because friends know each other and they have spent many years with each other. So, the bond that is between them strengthens their company. And also, helping them in times of difficulty and making them happy while going through some issues makes this relationship long-lasting.
Question 3:- Does it make things easier in a friendship if you have similar interests?
Answer 1:- Yes, if people have similar interests, they have fewer chances of a fight and any other kind of disagreement because people know what things can make a person happy and what can cause their distress. So individuals on their own try to reduce those conflicts.
Answer 2:- Yes, definitely. With similar interests, friends can spend time together and not get bored. They will also have similar topics for discussion. In a lasting friendship, it is essential that your likes and dislikes are similar.
Question 4:- Do you think we meet new people differently now than in the past?
Answer 1:- Yes, it is quite true. The type of friends we have in different stages of life greatly varies. In childhood, we make friends who live near us or study with us. The number of friends is quite high in childhood, and they are mostly our playmates. We make comparatively fewer friends in schools, and the preference is mostly based on common interests. At the university level, we make many friends, but the number starts reducing with age. In old age, we have comparatively fewer friends, but most of them are very close.
Question 5:- What do you think? What type of personality do people of the young generation admire?
Answer 1:- I think the younger generation admires people who are loyal, hardworking as well as have persuasive personalities, and such kinds of people don’t need to introduce to the people about their good qualities. Their behaviour and actions attract others and compel them to admire them.
Answer 2:- Well, a few certain qualities are preferable by youngsters around us, and people just love those features among others. Honesty, sincerity, truthfulness and talent are the most common among these qualities. Besides, people also seek humbleness, generosity and good manners among people they like. Moreover, we do not like people who show off and are arrogant. Confidence is another quality that people admire so much, I believe. In fact, confident people achieve success more quickly than others. They also love gratitude, and this is an admirable quality, in my opinion. Effective communication skill is a very special feature that people seek among others. Finally, youngsters also admire committed people.
Question 6:- Why is friendship nowadays so volatile?
Answer 1:- Now, friendship is more volatile because people have great expectations from others. If the other person gets fail to fulfil their expectations, they try to find another person. The things that they might dislike earlier can be pleasing to them later.
Answer 2:- Friendship is so volatile because of selfish reasons. In the past, people actually respected the relationship very much and they were very honest and they used to go to any extent for their friends and they were true friends but today I believe so people make friends out of greed and selfishness so they are always keeping their benefits in mind so it can be volatile many times we should identify a person properly before making him or her friend otherwise it would be like friends with benefits.
Question 7:- How do people in your country make friends these days?
Answer 1:- Well, people make friends through the help of social media as well. When they go on trips, they meet other people, start talking with them, exchange their numbers, and become friends.
Answer 2:- People in my country like to make friends, and they are very joyful and cheerful today. They socialise on different platforms. They meet at different events and get-togethers, where they exchange their ideas and opinions. Secondly, they also meet on social media platforms, where they exchange more information about each other. If they develop a very good bonding between them, then they become friends, and they keep in touch using modern technology and social media platform.
