    What My Friend Is Like

    I want to ask my students to write a composition in English on the topic “What My Friend Is Like” (in which they are supposed to describe the character and personality of a friend of theirs). Is such a title OK?
    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    It's grammatically OK but I don't really like it. I would probably suggest something like "My Best Friend" - that will give them the opportunity to tell you about their friend's personality and character as well as some other information.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Thank you. And if it shouldn't necessarily be one's best friend? It's OK if they write about an aquaintance, or just a friend, not the best one. Which title could you suggest then?

    They could just call it "My friend" or perhaps "My friend [name of friend]".
