There is a new girl in my school and she is from Taiwan. She can't speak any English. How can I be friends with her?

Reply from the Highlights Editors
It's great that you want to befriend this girl. You can probably play simple games like tic-tac-toe or hopscotch together before you learn each other's languages. And remember that a smile works in any language. Your kindness will mean a lot to her, even if you cannot communicate with words.

Your nice attitude may lead to a wonderful friendship with this girl.

Best wishes,
