Hi! I am Lina. Hearing the story about you, I think you must be a very vivacious girl, and I think we will become good friends. I am looking forward to your coming to China. At that time, we can think about the future together.I have a younger brother also; he is in grade nine now and is the top of the class. I am proud of him. You said you like singing and dancing. In fact, I like them also. However, my dancing is not very good because I have no chance to learn it. So maybe I can learn it when I enter college and take part in the dance community. Now my primary task is learning and going to college. You should also work hard for your dream. When I talked with brothers and sisters in "Little Red Scarf", I found there are a lot of things to learn. And I understand the true meaning of an old saying in China: "One is never too old to learn”.
You said you like physics and English. I like English, particularly English reading. I think it is an enjoyment. But I do not like physics, because it's a little bit abstract. Now let’s talk about the course of philosophy. My philosophy teacher is a very graceful woman, which is one of the reasons I like philosophy. I remember the first class of the philosophy. The teacher told us a story about the great philosopher Socrates. She said: "One day, Socrates and his friends chatted in the room. After a while, Socrates and his friends went around, but Socrates’ wife was very unhappy and shouted abuse. When Socrates went downstairs, his wife poured down a pot of water, so Socrates got wet. Then Socrates said: "I know, after the thunder, there will be heavy rain." Socrates’ wise words mitigated all his embarrassment, so I admire him. I found that philosophy makes people rational, and those words are so humorous. I like reasonable and kind people; I believe you are a very nice person.
You said you want to know what life is like in China. Then I invite you to come to China in person! Welcome to China. At that time, please remember to meet me. I am also curious about your country. I think it is as beautiful as China. Could you introduce your hometown and your living environment to me? What do you think about the most important thing between the friends? If there is misunderstanding between friends, what will you do? I'm looking forward to your letter and your visit to China.
