Q: What is the difference between opportunity and chance ?

So perhaps, what your friend is saying is that, in most cases opportunity is used for something that rarely comes by or life changing as he said, like an opportunity to work abroad and stuff. I'm not saying that you cannot use chance in that sentence, it's just that chance is something that you are able to take advantage often. But really it doesn't really differ that much. I hope I made sense. xD

A: An opportunity is when you're given circumstances that make it possible to do something / that make it possible for something to happen: Because Joe quit, I was given the opportunity to get a promotion. (Joe quitting are the circumstances, and now it's possible to get a job)

Chance can mean "the possibility of something happening" and "an opportunity to do something". But it usually means that you won't know the outcome of the chance.
"Take a chance," would mean, "make a gamble." "Give (it/me/them) a chance," means "give something an opportunity/try, even though you don't know what the outcome will be."
