Introduction

Timothy have been my close friend for two years. I first meeted him on a school exchange trip to the Paris, France. I asked him the road to the library and we started talking. We are friends ever since.

Timothy is quite well-looking. He’s tall and slim, with olive skin and a curly dark hair. Like many French people, he has great sense of style, so he always looking well-dressed even in casual clothes.

Timothy is very outgoing. He has always friendly and loves to having fun. He’s got a fantastic sense of humour and he has always makes me laugh. However he can be immature at times. For example, when he don’t get what he wants, he acts childishly and stamps his feet.

Timothy is very keen at water sports. He likes sailing and he spends a lot of time on his boat. He enjoys scuba dive, too, and loves exploring life under the seaside.

All in all, I‘m glad to have Timothy like my friend. It’s a pleasant to be with him and I really enjoy him company. I’m sure we’ll always are close friends.
