2. Friends are like books – you don’t need a lot of
them as long as they’re good. 3. My best friend helps to bring out the best in me. 4. A true friend reaches for your hand and touches your heart.
My favorite saying is ―A true friend reaches for your hand and touches your heart.‖ It makes me think about my best friend, Wu Zhou. He always
helps me when I’m in trouble.
Example: Wang Lingling’s best friend is Liu Lili. They are both tall, but Wang has long straight hair, Liu has short straight hair. Wang Lingling likes reading, but Liu Lili
likes sports. They are both popular in
class. They’re both outgoing.
Make notes about two of your friends. One friend should be similar to you; the other friend should be different.
A friend who is different from me Name: funny and popular is good at soccer speaks loudly smart a good listener
A friend who is similar to me Name: tall and thi
n likes reading quiet and serious hard-working has good grades
Write two paragraphs describing your friends.
My friend A is quite similar to me. We are both tall and thin. We are both quiet and serious. We like reading together. We are hard-working in class,
so we often get good grades.
My friend B is different from me.
She’s funnier and more outgoing
than me. She always speaks loudly. She is good at soccer. She’s smart and she’s a good listener.
My mother told me a good friend is like a mirror. I’m quieter and more serious than most kids. That’s why I like reading books and I study harder in class. He likes reading and studies harder in class. My best friend Yuan Li is quiet, too. So we enjoy studying together. I’m shy so it’s not easy for me to make friends. But I think friends are like books—you don’t need a lot of them as long as they’re good. It’s not necessary to be the same. My best friend Larry is quite different from me. He is taller and more outgoing than me. We both like sports, but he plays tennis better, so he always wins. However, Larry often helps to bring out the best in me. So I’m getting better at tennis. Larry is much less hard-working, though. I always get better grades than he does, so maybe I should help him more.
I don’t really care if my friends are the same as me or different. My favorite saying is, ―A true friend reaches for your hand and touches your heart.‖ My best friend Carol is really kind and very funny. In fact, she’s funnier than anyone she knows. I broke my arm last year but she made me laugh and feel better. We can talk about and share everything. I know she cares about me because she’s always there to listen.
一、I’m shy so it’s not easy for me to make friends. _________________________. 翻“It’s +adj.+for sb. to do sth.” 是固定结构，意为 译“_______”.其中____ 是形式主语，真正主语是后 面的动词不定式短语。当句中的形容词为描述事物 探特征的词，如important, necessary, possible, 究difficult, easy等时，其后的介词用______。当句 中的形容词为描述人物品质及性格特征的词，如 nice, kind ,clever等时，后面介词用_____. 每天喝足够的水对我们来说很重要的。 ______ very _______ _______ us _____ _____ enough water every day. 你帮助我学习英语真是太好了。 ______ very _____ _____ you _____ help me _____ my English.
