☆  close 親しい


If you describe people as being close to each other, it means that they like each other very much and that they know each other very well. Here are some example sentences:

As a little girl, she was very close to her sister but they grew apart.
When I was at university, I shared a house with a close friend from school.
I had a close relationship with my granny and still miss her years after her death.

Who are you close to? Can you use close in a sentence to describe your relationship with that person?
