How much do you know your neighbours?

To be honest,my neighbours and I only have a nodding acquaintance We don't really communicate that often because there are not many common activities to do together in my neghbourhood.


Do you think neighbours should help each other?

Absolutely, neighbours are the people who live just next door to you.If you have any kind of emergency,they are the people that actually will jump up and give a hand to you. In this regard,neighbours should help each other.


Do you see your neighbours often?

Not really. My neighbours are all busy businessmen.I don't see them too often.I probably only see them twice a week in the corridor.


Do you get along with your neighbours?

Yes, I really respect my neighbours. There are not any problems between us. In China,we have an old saying that goes like this,"a far-off relative is not as helpful as a near neighbour". From that old proverb you can see people really respect their nelghbours in Chinese culture.


What would be the problem between you and your neighbours?

There is not really a problem between my neighbours and me. If I had to mention one,I would say it would be the amount of noise I hear from them. One of my neighbours always likes to play music really loud.Sometimes, it can be disturbing. Apart from that,everything else is fine .

1)Are there many people live near you?

Yes, I live in a small/ big community, so I’ve got a lot of neighbors. You know, nowadays, the relationship between neighbors is not as close as before. Most of people who are busy their work may not know who their neighbors are, and some people just say “hello”when they bump into their neighbors in the community.

2)Do you think it’s important to know your neighbors?

Yes. There is an old saying: A far-off relative is not as helpful as a near neighbor. Well, having good relationships with your neighbors has many benefits. You know, people live in a society not vacuum, everybody need communication and help. If you get on well with your neighbor, you can become good friends, share ideas about life with them. What’s more, when you are stuck in trouble at home, the most efficient way is to ask your neighbor for help.

3)What sorts of problem can people have with their neighbors?

Well, sometimes, the problems between neighbors cannot be avoided because of different lifestyles and different views. For example, old people may not tolerant the loud music and ruckus all night long caused by young people. On the other hand, young people may get irritated with the sound of morning exercise.

4)Would you prefer to have young people as young neighbors, or old people?

Well, I prefer to be neighborhood with old people. As far as I know, the elderly are always very nice and kind. They usually have a pleasant face and are very generous to offer help. Old people give the impression of being friendly and tolerant. This is perhaps because they have experienced a lot for their own lives and they can see a lot of things clearly. What’s more, I think older neighborhood usually have regular timetable, you know, they get up early and sleep early. In comparison, young people nowadays are notorious for being irresponsible and selfish. They are not as polite as the older people do. They are likely to make community noise on party nights. Too much noise will drive me crazy in a quite night. I just don’t think I can stand that.

I met him in the elevator of my apartment. I was waiting on the ground floor for the elevator and he was standing beside me. At first, we didn’t have talksbut a few moments later, he started talking on the phone. I came to know that he was the new tenant of the apartment opposite to mine. Then we got introduced inside the elevator and I invited him to be my guest for some tea.

第三问:What this person likes to do. 更为实际,谨记不必列举恶性事件,一定要加上表述,最好是与角色特点相连接.

Whenever I meet him, I become pleased after talking with him. Mr. Liu is the man who will make you feel comfortable with his companion and you cannot stop laughing hearing his jokes and the way he talks. Sometimes he tells the stories of African people and their living styles, their cultures and customs. Besides, we have formed a network with few other neighbours in the apartment building, so that we can have chats regularly in the evening or during weekends when everyone is back from their works. I would say life is never dull when he is around. (画龙点晴的结束)
