IELTS Speaking Part 3: Meeting a friend

Meeting a friend

  1. What happens when someone has an appointment with you but they cancel it?

I’m okay with it. I think that people only cancel an appointment when they have no other choices, so it is unreasonable to get mad at them. Therefore, when my appointment with others is cancelled, I will discuss with them to reschedule it. However, I will really appreciate it if people don’t wait until the last minute to tell me about their cancellation.

  1. Do you think it’s strange to meet friends online?

Absolutely not! The advent of social media allows people to meet and interact with others who have the same interests around the world. A great number of people make friends online now, and many of them are even able to find their soulmates. There was some disapproval when the idea of making friends online first arose, but now people get used to it.

  1. Why do some people have few friends?

There are some reasons why people do not have many friends. First, some introverts may find it difficult to strike conversations and make friends. Another reason is that some people prefer quality to quantity. Instead of having a lot of friends, these people want to be surrounded by only people who truly understand them.

  1. What is more important: new friends or old ones?

In my opinion, old friends are definitely of greater importance. While having new friends can make our life more interesting, old friends are those who understand us better and have been with us through ups and downs. Therefore, I think we should try our best to maintain relationships with old friends rather than seeking opportunities to make new friends.
