c) Прослушайте запись еще раз и проверьте. Какие качества хороши для друга? А какие не очень? Почему?
Your friend should be helpful to be always there for you and kind-hearted. A friend should be honest and never lie to you because real friends share secrets, don’t hide or change information.
A friend shouldn’t be too serious or on the contrary too talkative to get on well with you and other people. I also don’t suppose that a friend should be nosy in order not to bore you with endless questions. He should be active and not a couch potato at all because an active person is more interesting, he enjoys outdoor activities, goes hiking, fishing, skateboarding and snowboarding.
