I don't prefer any of this. I can speak with friends in real life or just massage them. But speak in real life is just better

Before doing this task, I was always thinking about how to write a message to my friends. Now, I think it's easier than what I thought. Special thanks from British council for providing such a high-quality material.

Hello abbas.a,

We're so glad to hear this! Thanks very much for letting us know!

Best wishes,
Kirk

Generally I prefer talking. If the content is not important then, I would send msg.

I mostly use messages to make plans with my friends.
But recently I started to use voice recordes on whatsapp.. I feel like it's between messages and calling, so it's easy to make plans❤

I mostly send messages. They are more available for messages because they usually work during that time.

I prefer to send messages, because we're always too busy to see each other, so we make plans via text.
