Writing about friendship My English teacher asked us to describe one of our closest friends. He said: Describe one of your closest friends? Why did she use the superlative form in the sentence? I know that the adjective 'close' means intimate and near, and when I say s/he so close to me, it means that I'm talking about someone that I consider as my 'best' friend or someone that I love/admire... So I think my teacher should have said: Describe your best friend. (the superlative form) or Describe your close / intimate friend. What do you think? Thank you all!

closest in this context is ok however your point of view is also right.

Describe one of your closest friends is OK. Le plus proche des proches.
