Sample Answer 1
Here is the sample for “describe/talk about your best friend” topic
I would like to talk about my best friend, Hriday. It has been almost 5 years since we have known each other. Talking about how we met, it was all through social media. He was my friend’s friend on Facebook. I had spoken to him a few times on comments, and then he sent me a friend request. Upon the very first conversation, I clicked with him like never before.
Since the beginning, Hriday was quite outspoken with me. Although he has a shy and reserved personality, with me, he spoke his heart out. At first, I was a bit sceptical of talking like this with a stranger. However, he made me feel comfortable in no time and soon, we became close friends. He is an amiable person.
Living in the same city, we have met several times. Right from reading novels to going on bike rides, there are plenty of things we have done together. One of the best things about him is the positive attitude he carries. He listens to me patiently. I have the utmost confidence in him. Whenever I have an issue, the first person I want to talk to is Hriday. And, very calmly, he listens to me and then helps me think and act rationally.
I just hope we stay friends for years to come.

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.
