Helloooo everyone out there,

I hope you liked yesterday’s chapter.

Well, in case if you missed it anyway, please read that first and come back here again.

I am back again with another chapter of our “FREE 30-day Vocabulary Acquisition Course” and today let’s strengthen our bond by learning some vocabulary related to F.R.I.E.N.D.S.

Oops sorry!

I meant to write ‘Friends’.

So without further ado, let’s see a friendly context and make our friendship stronger:


Yesterday I received a message from an old friend of mine whom I have not seen after the college farewell. His name was Jack, who used to be a close-knit friend during college days but as our priorities changed we never got time to get in touch.

Seeing his message I got all excited to meet him. I wanted to see how much has he changed in these years and what he was up to, so we decided to meet up at the square bar at 10:00 pm sharp.

When I saw him, I was quite shocked at seeing his transformation. He used to be a skinny guy during college days but he had some good muscles now. He told me he is an accountant in a reputed company in Mumbai.

I was not sure earlier if we would be able to catch up everything after so long; but to be frank, we hit it off quite well like we did the time we met on the first day of college. It was fun meeting him and reliving our golden memories during those days.
