What is your most memorable encounter?

My most memorable encounter was when I met my first foreign friend. At the beginning I could barely speak English and couldn’t understand most of the things he said. We had to use paper and pen, as well as body language to express our ideas. As the time passed by, I have tried my best to improve my English in order to communicate easier. After that, I became more confident and had more optimistic viewpoints. I try to work hard and make dream come true, just like the way I tried to nurture the friendship with my foreign friend.
