IELTS Speaking Part 2 Topic:
Describe someone who is your online friend.
You should say:
- who is he/she
- how you know him/her
- how long you two are friends
and explain how you two maintain the online friendship.
Since social media has become a platform for communication, I’ve made few friends online in-spite of being an introvert. One of those friends is Hung.
I met him a year ago, when I joined a 2-month-training-course in Saigon. As my hometown is in Hanoi, I had to live apart from my family in a rented house. I was a bit lonely at that time as I didn’t know many people in Saigon. There were moments when I felt so empty that I wanted to go out for a walk, and call someone but there was no one I could call. It made everything even worse for me. Thus, I decided to use a dating mobile application to find someone to talk with.
Immediately, I connected to some people living near me. We had a chat but they were not much fun. I almost gave up on getting a new online friend when I connected with him. Despite my late replies, Hung seemed to be very patient. He was willing to listen to all of my stories, giving me courage and motivation. Moreover, I worked in the same field with him so we had a lot of things in common. Gradually, we set up a strong friendship. I was about to meet him on my last days in Saigon but some unexpected events took place, preventing us from meeting in person.
However, we’re still good friends until now, after 1 year. Though we live far away from each other, we always support and keep in touch with each other. I do hope that we will have a chance to meet each other the next time I take a business trip to Saigon.
