IELTS Speaking Part 3 Question and Sample Answer:

Friendship is important to me. I can talk with my friends about my family, my worries or my plans. They will give me a lot of advice and support. I can share my happiness or sadness with them. Without friends. it will be difficult to survive in modern society. which is full of competition and struggle.

What kind of characteristics must your friends have?

I like making friends with active and optimistic people. They can cheer me up when I feel depressed. My friends should be helpful and warm-hearted. I don’t like selfish people.

What are the possible factors that cause friends to break up?

I think honesty and trust are the most significant things among friends. Lies would destroy friendship. I cannot endure my friends if they are late because I’m always punctual. Besides. I will be angry if my friends cheat me. and this will cause us to break up.

Do you think it’s easy to make friends in China?

Do you think there’s a difference between adult and children making friends?

Yes. definitely. When we were young, our friends were mainly neighbors or classmates. if we often did homework and went to school together. we were friends. And parents would tell us whether we could make friends with a particular person or not. But after we grow up, our circle of friends will be larger. Our friends may include people of different background. We can choose our own friends.

How do you make friends with others?

I have some colleagues and we often go to bars. We talk about a lot of things together. and gradually, our relationship is closer and closer. We become good friends.

What’s the most important factor that you should consider when you make friends?

Well, it’s hard to say, but I guess understanding and honesty are the two factors that I‘ll take into account. As for other things. they’re not so important. I believe that a friend means a person you can trust and he or she can trust you too. Friends can help you when you are in trouble. And when they are in trouble. you will help them too.
