Having a best friend to confide in can bring a positive effect on our emotional health. An evening
out with the closest friend may be the best guarantee of a good time. In fact, our best friend can
prevent us from developing serious psychological problems such as depression and anxiety.
Best friendship evolves with time - we cannot go out and pick our best friend. We become friends
with people who share common interests – at school or through hobbies, for example.

Best friends have usually known each other for years and stuck together through good and bad
times. If you haven't got one, perhaps you are being too distant from people, or focusing too much on
your work.

In the last few weeks I have spent every Saturday in my flat and have done nothing more exciting
than work at home, read the newspapers, and watch television. I had begun feeling bored with this and
so, last weekend I thought I would do something different. I phone several of my friends and we
decided to go to London for the day. I was really excited as I hadn't been to London since I was ten. We
decided to go by coach as this was the cheapest means of transport. In London we decided to take a
sightseeing tour as we wanted to see some of the famous buildings. After the tour, we bought some
sandwiches and ate them in a small park. In the afternoon some of us went shopping and the others
went to the theater. We met up again at 6.30 pm and went to a small restaurant. The meal was really
good, but, unfortunately, it took much longer than we had expected. We had to get a taxi back to the
coach station. Luckily, we got there just two minutes before our coach left.

Meeting old school friends again can be a strange (1) . Some have changed so much that you can
hardly recognize them: they speak with a different (2) , are interested in different things and all you
can do is make small (3) and hope they'll go soon. Others, though you might have been out of (4) with
them for years, are just the same as they always were - it's as if you (5) saw them yesterday.
Before you know it, you're exchanging (6) about your families and friends, and setting out the
(7) for another game of chess. A few change for the better. There's one person that I (8) on with very
well now, though we weren't on speaking (9) for our last two years at school. One day, we met at a
party and made it up and (10) engaged the same evening.
E. Read the passage carefully, then decide whether the following statements are true (T) or
false (F).
The proverb 'A friend in need is a friend indeed.' means that we shall know who our real friends are
when we are in need. Those who desert us when we are in difficulty are just unfaithful friends.
A true friend would remain with us whether we are rich or poor. Some people be friend the rich,
simply for the sake of getting benefits from them.
It is useless to have insincere friends because these friends remain with us as long as we are rich or
powerful. It is better to have one or two good friends rather than having hundreds of insincere ones.
A true friend will stand by us in our trials and tribulations. He will be a great source of consolation
and comfort in our troubles. So we must be careful in choosing our friends. It is difficult to choose a
sincere friend overnight; it takes years for us to find a sincere friend.
1. Real friends share everything we need.

2. Unfaithful friends stop being our friends when we are in trouble.
3. A rich friend is always a true friend.
4. A true friend is always loyal to us and support us through our difficulties.
5. It's not worth having a lot of friends.
6. It may take a lot of time to find a real friend.
