1.Have you ever experienced a broken relationship with your friends? 2.What are the advantages of having (a lot of) friends? 3.Why are friends like family?
Sample answers： 1.I am afraid yes. That is a terrible relationship. One of my former high school classmates used to be my best friends. We went to canteen every day during school. One day, she told me that she loved the one guy secretly and wanted to confess to him. I was totally astonished to stop her because the guy was actually the person who had written a love letter to me. 2.Well, I do not have a lot of friends I have to say. I guess those who have many friends around them will feel very proud because that is a proof of their outstanding skills of interpersonal relationships. When they go to occasions such as company anniversary, school parties, or graduate balls, they will definitely become the center of conversation groups. 3.Friends are similar to families because both of them will support and protect us in front of danger.Close friends could help me at critical moments. For example, when I need money to get through some difficulties, it is friends and families who will stand out and cope with the problems with me together. Also, indeed friends, like our parents, will feel happy for us rather than feel envious to us when good things happen.
