Listen to Ted who’s telling about his friends and answer the questions.

2. What are Ted’s friends’ special interests?

4. Why are they never bored?

5. Why does Ted like his friends?

6. Can Ted be helpful to his friends?

7. Why do Ted and his friends sometimes quarrel?

I like to be around people. My mum says that I am very sociable. I’ve got many friends. We like to go out, play games and in general have a lot of fun together.

My friends are always ready to help me. Each of them can teach me something that I don’t know. When I have problems at home, I go to Sue. When my homework is difficult, I go to Frank. He can help me with Maths. When a Maths test comes up, I sit near Frank and cheat from his paper. He’s very smart!

I’m good at English. Maths is my weak point. With Kevin and Pat I like to play computer games. Bob and I have the same hobby — we collect stamps and badges. It’s very interesting to talk to him about our collections.

Each time we all get together we talk about what films we’ve seen lately or what we did at the weekend. Sometimes we have quarrels but we make peace quickly. There are a lot of us and we are never bored!

Is it good to have many friends? What do you think?
