BAND 9.0 SAMPLE ANSWER:
I would like to describe my best friend, Huong, whom I have known for roughly 10 years. I first met her at primary school when she was my classmate. At first, she was quite shy and did not want to talk with anyone, which made me feel that she was a bit proud. However, when we became close friends, she was more sociable and amiable. We have done a lot of things together. Studying at the same schools, we have various
mutual friends. So, we usually throw parties at the weekends or have a picnic together.
Besides, whenever I get into trouble, I turn to her for help. For example, I remember when I got bad marks in the mock university entrance exam, she consoled me and then we studied together until the official exam took place. Finally, we had the opportunity to study at our favorite college.
At present, despite the fact that we have different plans and goals to pursue, I believe that we will be best friends for good and we will try our best to maintain this relationship.
