— [https://goo.gl/aWW7NA] This episode is _______________________about some phrasal verbs and other expressions relating to friendship, while also putting a friendship to the test.



:: RT: Lifelong friendship ▶ https://goo.gl/jRkWre ◀, Friendship is a type of relationship between two people who care about each other. But such a dry definition doesn't do the concept of friendship justice. Consider these examples: A friend is the first person you want to call when you hear good news. A friend remembers that you don't like pickles on your sandwich. A friend will accompany you on the most boring of errands and make them seem fun. | #BrE #BritishEnglish #RP #UK #English #LukesPodcast #Speaking #ESLclassroom #Friendship
