Friendship is a beautiful part of everyone's
life
. We share most of things with our friends, whether is good or bad. We almost share everything with our true friends. Keeping old friends is important,
however
some people believe that it is important than making new friends. I disagree with the statement, I believe that making new friends is important because we have friends around you whether they are old or new friends. Sometimes making new friendship is used to find true friends in our
life

lives
.
First
, if you develop new friendship,
then
your
life
has some changes. You cannot have your friends always with you. If you go to another country or another university is not possible your old friends are always there. So you can make new friends
otherwise
, your
life
will be boring without friends or it will hate your
life
in the new environment.
For example
, one of my friends, he was poor to make new friends, he is not easily trusting of people.

, when he went into university, he had his friends behind. At the being, he spent a few days without friends, and he has realized that without friend his
life
has borne. So he started talking with new people make new friends and he enjoyed
lot
their company and had a great time with them.
Thus
, you have to make new friends when you move to another place.

, when you come in contact with the new people, you learn their perspective and the environment. When you talk with new people, you teach more thing about these people, and
this
(used to introduce a logical conclusion) from that fact or reason or as a result

So many of them are my good friends, we share problem with others and they help me to find a solution for them.
Thus
, you interact with new people, it will possible they have with your friends.
Last
but not least, I like to mix with the people and enjoy new friends' company. That have

a lot

also
necessary, I can’t live in a new place without friends. So, I can make some new friends and enjoyed a new friendship forever.
In addition

Include an introduction and conclusion

A conclusion is essential for IELTS writing task 2. It is more important than most people realise. You will be penalised for missing a conclusion in your IELTS essay.

The easiest paragraph to write in an essay is the conclusion paragraph. This is because the paragraph mostly contains information that has already been presented in the essay – it is just the repetition of some information written in the introduction paragraph and supporting paragraphs.

The conclusion paragraph only has 3 sentences:

  • Summary
  • Restatement of thesis
  • Prediction or recommendation

Example:

To summarize, a robotic teacher does not have the necessary disciple to properly give instructions to students and actually works to retard the ability of a student to comprehend new lessons. Therefore, it is clear that the idea of running a classroom completely by a machine cannot be supported. After thorough analysis on this subject, it is predicted that the adverse effects of the debate over technology-driven teaching will always be greater than the positive effects, and because of this, classroom teachers will never be substituted for technology.

Start your conclusion with a linking phrase. Here are some examples:

  • In conclusion
  • To conclude
  • To summarize
  • Finally
  • In a nutshell
  • In general
