What makes a good neighbor?
Neighbors are the people who live near us. In your opinion, what are the qualities of a good neighbor？Use specific details and examples in your answer.
这道题目的展开需要考虑两个问题，首先是邻居能够带给你哪些帮助？其次是邻居可能会给你造成哪些困扰？把这两个问题的答案都写下来，基本上你就能找到话题展开的方向了。一般来说，形容邻居比较常见的一些quality有intelligence, honesty, a sense of humor等等。当然这也是描述各类积极的正面的人群都很容易用到的基本优点，还有比如optimistic and positive; politeness; loyalty大家也可以考虑用到这篇文章的话题展开当中去。
Neighbors are extraordinarily important people in our lives. Many people make a decision about what place they want to live in based on their future neighbors. People most want to live near neighbors who are respectful, vigilant, and community-minded.
The foundation of any relationship, whether among neighbors or friends, colleagues or family members, is mutual respect. Respect between neighbors means that when they see each other they will be warm and polite.
Neighbors don't have to be friends, but they need not be strangers either. Because neighbors live close together, sometimes it is unavoidable that they will learn personal details about their neighbors. A respectful person will not intrude upon their neighbor's privacy, or share these private details with anyone else.
Another important aspect of being a good neighbor is to be vigilant. If people see a robber trying to break into their neighbor's house, then they should call the police. If they see a neighbor's young child in a dangerous situation, they should help the child, or at least give the alarm. If the government posts new regulations, they will help inform their neighbors of the new laws. If everyone in a neighborhood watches out for each other's safety, then the neighborhood will be a safer and more pleasant place. Moreover, good neighbors are community-minded. They care about their local environment. Good neighbors will not throw trash on the ground, and if they see trash on the ground they will pick it up. They will make decisions based with consideration to their neighbors. They won't play loud music late at night or get drunk and fight in public. They want to live in a happy, peaceful community and they believe that their personal actions have a direct effect on the happiness of all of their neighbors. If all the people in the community think about the good of the community when they make decisions, the whole community will benefit.
