Ans: Yes, I can as good friend with someone from another culture as with someone from my own culture. Friendship is the combination of two or more souls. There is no matter what his/ her culture is. True friend evaluates his/ her personality, attitudes, behavior, honesty, and makes him/ her intimate friend. Two persons from different cultures may be good friends if they understand each other.
- Can friend ever be more important to you than family. Explain.
Ans: Friends and family both are needed in our life and both of them are equally important, too. But family is more important than friends. In my opinion, friends are something but family is everything. Friends come and go but family is always with us. When there is even a small dispute with friends, friendship can be easily broken family is always dearer. Some persons can stay even without making friends but we can’t say without family. Let’s imagine; how can we stay by forgetting our father, mother, brother, sister, etc.? When we are sick, our friends just come to visit and give sympathy but our family is every time with us. Many friends seem to run after our money rather than true friendship. When we are out of money, they leave us and make new friends. But I think family doesn’t do so because there is true relationship between family and us.
To sum up, I have many friends in my life. They are also important for me. They are also dear to me. They also help to me. but family is family, Friends can’t dearer and more important than family.
