It depends on situation. If I plan meet with on friend, I prefer to call. But if I plan have meeting with group of friends, I prefer test message. For this we have a special chat on Telegram. In this chat we can discuss place, plans, time and other things. All participants can check history of the chat in convenient time.

I'm talkative=)) That's why I have lots of information to talk. However, the time meet friend for me is too short for me so I've always go on internet to explain my feelings. texting message more often also makes me comfortable because almost my friend stay in touch with me by the internet! though, Msging a lot make us funny. We can't deny its negative effect - waste time for unhealthy work! Answer question 2: i prefer having a disscussion about choosing something. do u know? i'm a person who usually confused between many choices that's why i need s.o who can support me to get a good choice

It depends on when the conversation happens. During working hours, I prefer to send text messages, yet if I am on break time I will speak with my friends directly.

I usually text my friends whenever we plan to eat out for lunch or dinner, mostly on Facebook, cuz we are online most of the time of day.

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.
