Hi, today I'm going to tell you about my best friend. I've got a lot of very good friends but my best friend is Emily. I first met Emily about 25 years ago when we both worked at a language school in central London, and we became friends immediately. I like Emily because she's clever, funny, kind and we like the same kinds of things. We sometimes meet for lunch or coffee and a chat, or other times we go for a walk or to see an exhibition. We usually meet about once a month. How about you? Have you got a best friend, or lots of friends? Can you tell us about them?
