1. Why do people need friends? 

People need friends for various reasons. First, friends provide emotional support, helping us navigate through life’s ups and downs. They are there to celebrate our successes and offer a shoulder to cry on during tough times. Additionally, friends can offer advice and different perspectives on various issues. This feedback is invaluable for personal growth and decision-making. In short, friends are essential for our mental and emotional health, providing companionship and reducing feelings of loneliness. 

  • ups and downs (phrase): thăng trầm 
  • perspective (n): quan điểm 

2. How do you communicate with friends? 

There are various ways that I communicate with my friends, ranging from face-to-face interactions to digital communication. In real life, we can go to the coffee house, go for a walk, or participate in shared activities. Moreover, thanks to the development in technology, staying in touch with friends has become more convenient through various platforms. Social media, messaging apps, and video calls bridge the gap when physical meetings aren’t possible. For instance, I often use apps like Facebook and Instagram to have a chat with friends who live far away.  

  • bridge the gap (collocation): thu hẹp khoảng cách 

3. Why don’t some people like to socialize? 

Some people may not enjoy socializing due to a variety of reasons. One of the reasons may be their personal traits. Introverted individuals, for example, often find social interactions draining and might feel overwhelmed in social settings and require more downtime to recharge. Past negative experiences can also contribute to a reluctance to socialize. Individuals who have faced bullying or social anxiety might develop a fear of being judged or not fitting in, leading them to avoid social situations altogether. 

  • downtime (n): thời gian nghỉ ngơi 
  • reluctance (n): sự do dự, sự không sẵn lòng 

4. Can talking with people improve social skills? 

Yes, certainly. Talking with people is one of the best ways to enhance social skills. By interacting with a variety of people in different contexts, individuals can broaden their understanding of various perspectives and cultures, making them more socially competent and adaptable. This practice helps build confidence, reduce social anxiety, and improve overall interpersonal skills. Over time, they become more comfortable initiating conversations, expressing their thoughts, and handling social challenges. 

  • interpersonal skill (n): kỹ năng xã hội 
  • initiate (v): bắt đầu 

5. Does technology help people communicate better with others? 

Absolutely. Technology has significantly transformed and enhanced the way we communicate, making it easier, faster, and more efficient to connect with others. People can exchange information and updates in real-time via various platforms such Facebook, WhatsApp and so on. These platforms also enable face-to-face interaction without the need for physical presence, making remote communication more personal and effective. This is particularly beneficial for maintaining connections with family, friends, and colleagues who are geographically dispersed. 

6. Do you prefer to go out with a group of friends or just with a few close friends? 

Personally, I prefer going out with a few close friends rather than a large group. Spending time with a small group allows for more focused and quality interactions. We can pay more attention to each person and enjoy their company without the distractions that come with larger groups. Everyone gets a chance to participate and engage in the conversation, ensuring that no one feels left out. Furthermore, with fewer people, it’s easier to tailor the outing according to everyone’s preferences and interests, leading to a more personalized and satisfying experience for all involved. 

  • distraction (n): sự phân tâm, sao nhãng 
  • tailor (v): thay đổi để phù hợp, thích nghi
