Free German Essay on "My Best Friend" (Mein Bester Freund)

Updated on March 12, 2018

Your German teacher told you to write about your best friend, but you have no idea how to do that. Well you are lucky, because you have me! I am a German native and am happy to help.

The examples I show below are structured in this format:

  1. First you will find an example of a short essay in German. It shows you how you to describe your own family and friends. Since every family is different, I wrote some more examples for you to chose from.
  2. After the German part follows a part in italics where I tell you in English what the German text is about.
  3. After the examples of short essays, you will find a list of German key words and conjugated verbs that I have provided for you so that you do not have to look them up in a dictionary.

Essay Examples

1.) My Best Pal (Mein Bester Kumpel)

Mein bester Kumpel heißt Brian. Ich kenne ihn seit wir zusammen im Kindergarten warten. Er lebt nur ein paar Blocks die Straße runter, und wir sehen uns jeden Tag in der Schule, obwjeder jetzt in einer Klasse ist. Aber wir sehen uns auf dem Schulhof, um mit ein paar anderen Freunden Fußball zu spielen, oder wir essen zusammen in der Mensa. Brian ist sehr gut in Mathe, und wenn ich Probleme mit meinen Hausaufgaben habe, dann zeigt er mir immer wie es geht. Ich glaube, er ist schon ein ziemlich guter Lehrer. Nachmittags spielen wir oft Minecraft. Das ist immer total lustig, da wir den gleichen Humor haben. Er spielt auch Geige im Schulorchester. Ich applaudiere immer besonders laut, wenn sie auf Schulfesten spielen. Ich hoffe, dass er niemals in eine andere Stadt zieht.

English Translation:

My best pal is called Brian. I have know him since we have been together in kindergarten. He lives just a few blocks down the street and we see each other every day at school, although he is in another class now. But we meet on the schoolyard to play some football with some other friends, or we eat together in the dining hall. Brian is very good at maths, and if I struggle with my homework he always shows me how to do it. I think he is quite a good teacher already. In the afternoon, we often play Minecraft together. That is always fun because we are sharing the same humor. He also plays the violin in the school orchestra. I always applaud extra loudly when they play at a school festival. I hope he never moves to another town.

2.) My Best Girlfriend (Meine Beste Freundin)

Meine beste Freundin Lisa und ich machen alles zusammen. Wir sind seit dem Beginn der High School befreundet. Sie ist aus Kalifornien hergezogen. Wir haben uns in der Theater Gruppe getroffen und herausgefunden, dass wir die gleichen Dinge mögen. Wir mögen Singen, Tanzen, Verkleiden und Schauspielen. Wir gehen jetzt jeden Samstag zusammen zu einer Musical Schule. Wir wollen später mal Filmstars werden und zusammen durchs Land ziehen. Wir geben oft Kleidertauschparties und laden dazu alle Freunde ein. Dann fotografieren wir uns gegenseitig nachdem wir unsere Haare gemacht haben. Ich finde Lisa so toll, weil sie immer genau weiß, worüber rede, und weil ich weiß, dass ich ihr alles erzählen kann, ohne dass sie über mich urteilt, sogar über den neuen niedlichen Jungen in der Klasse. Sie ist immer da für mich, wenn ich traurig bin, und ich kann mich auf sie verlassen, wenn ich sie um einen Gefallen bitte.

English Translation:

My best girlfriend Lisa and I do everything together. We have been friends since high school started. She moved here from California. We met in the theatre group and we found out that we enjoy the same things. We like singing, dancing, dressing up and acting. We are now going to a musical school together every Saturday. We want to become movie stars when we are older and travel around the country together. We often have dress swap parties and invite all our friends. Then we take photos of each other after we made each other's hair. I like Lisa so much because she always knows what I am talking about and I know that I can tell her everything without her judging me, even about the new cute boy in class. She is always there for me when I am sad, and I can rely on her when I ask her for a favor.
