Model Answer 1:

My new friend is a 26-year-old American girl, Jessica. I met her in KFC near the airport. She was about to buy some food but couldn’t speak Chinese. The KFC staff couldn’t understand her English. So, I went to ask her which one she wanted and explained it to the staff in Chinese. Later, she invited me to sit with her and told me that this was the first time that she had ever been to China alone for travelling.

I taught her to download Wechat, a popular social network application in China, and told her if she needed any help, feel free to contact me on Wechat. Also, I recommended her some famous tourist attractions, such as Gulangyu Island and Zeng Cuo An. She thanked me a lot and in return, she shared some American customs and tourist attractions with me. She also said if I had a chance to America, feel free to contact her. So far, we still kept in touch with each other by sending emails. In our email, we both would share our cultures, customs and tourist attractions with each other. Sometimes, we even talked through Skype and shared interesting things happened in our lives with each other. This was the first time that I had made friends with a foreigner and I felt really excited.
