  Suggested Answer:

  As the saying goes “A friend in need is a friend indeed.”, which is partly true, but a real friend should also be able to share your happy moments --- without feeling jealous. A good friendship is one where you accept and forgive faults, understand moods, and don’t feel hurt if a friend doesn’t feel like seeing you. Of course, honesty is an essential part of any relationship. We should learn to accept our friends for what they are. Anyway, I consider friendship to be one of the most important things in life.

  词汇与解析(WORDS AND EXPRESSIONS):

  1. essential adj. 本质的,实质的

  2. forgive v. 原谅,饶恕

  3. jealous adj. 妒忌的,嫉妒的

  4. mood n 心情,情绪

  答案解析:

  考生开门见山地谈了他对“友情”的理解,常言道:“ A friend in need is a friend indeed.” 患难朋友才是真正的朋友。当然,这在一定意义上是对的,副词“partly” 的使用为下一步的陈述埋下了伏笔,考生顺理成章地从不同角度阐明他对“友谊”的看法。真正的朋友会与你分享快乐时光,而没有任何嫉妒。真正的友谊意味着你能容忍和原谅朋友的错误,理解对方的情绪;如果你的朋友不太想见你,你也不会感到受了伤害 (A good friendship is one where you accept and forgive faults, understand moods, and don’t feel hurt if a friend doesn’t feel like seeing you.)。
  特别值得一提的是在答案的结尾有一个至关重要的句子 “… honesty is an essential part of any relationship.”,它高屋建瓴地概括了各种关系的内涵,它告诫我们只有以诚相待,才能建立真正的友谊。
  不同的人交友的标准不同。我们交友时,通常会愿意选择性格类似,而不是性格迥异的人,期望朋友间对待工作、学习和生活的态度有共同之处。真正的朋友能在你最困难的时候向你伸出援助之手,你愿意向他倾诉衷肠,他会给你提供宝贵的忠告和建议,他的心中时刻装着你。
  简而言之,回答“友谊”这类问题时,可以充分发表我们平时对“友谊”的看法,有条理地分层叙述。
