As I am now forty-eight years old, I have so many best friends, but one of them I like much better than any others is Lujing. I became acquainted with her when I began to go to school. Since Lujing and I have been living together for three years, I have a strong feeling with her which is that I known her had been more than ten years already. Lujing is a woman of a sweet and soft temper, but looks grave and solemn. She sometimes appears very old and sometimes very young and bright, but she is always clever, active, and alert. Lujing is a learned woman. She knows everything and studies nearly some languages spoken by mankind. Moreover, her memory is extremely remarkable. She remembers whatever has happened in the world. Lujing is also a great teacher. She has taught thousands upon thousands of young people. Lujing is my best teacher as well as my best friend. At first she taught me Chinese. When I was fifteen years of age, she began to teach me Cantonese. China has mandarin and Cantonese both languages] Lujing is a patient woman. Stupid as I am, she is never tired of teaching me. She continues to teach me until I am perfectly familiar with my lessons. But there is one thing which you may be surprised to know. Though I have lived with her a long time, I have never heard her voice. Whenever I ask her questions, she never answers them with her mouth, but shows me the answers on her face. Lujing is not only my best friend, but the best friend of many others. Therefore her name is widely known. I am sure you also know my best friend’s name and love her very much.
