Sample answer: (为了方便阅读，将每个小点分别列出)
Well, first of all, I think, a good leader should be encouraging enough.
For example, I had a boss, Jason, who used to say,”You are a capable young man, I know you can do it well” whenever I was not confident enough with my job. With his encouragement I was so successful in my job and became a team leader in 6 months.
Also, I believe a good leader should set good examples for all team-members. I remember my boss Jason used to workharder than any of us who were working with him in a team, even though he was the boss. We were so moved by what he did, and everybody followed his suit. So we were the most efficientteam.
That’s why I still remember Jason as my best boss till today.

In my point of view, I like to stay with an honest friend. I see honesty as the most important part of a friend because no one likes to hang around with a liar.
Also, I like my friends to be helpful just like my friend Tony. You know, I am bit weak with my math. Tony often spends his spare time explaining to me those difficult math problems. As a result I am doing pretty well in my math exams.
What’s more, I like to stay with interesting friends. Tony is a lot of fun. He knows so many jokes that you can laugh yourhead off when you crack jokes with him.

It occurs to me that Mr. Bean is the person who always makes me laugh. Mr. Bean rarely speaks, but his exaggerated/odd facial expressions usually make me burst into laughter. He usually misbehaves himself, for example, he once drops his coffee on a man’s laptop and then lets someone else take the blame. Besides, his ignorance of what’s going on around him also appears to be funny to me. For instance, in one scene, while Mr. Bean is driving, he falls asleep at the wheel.
I keep several Mr. Bean series in my computer, and when I feel upset or low, or want to have a study break, I usually open the files and watch a few episodes. His zany behaviors never fail to make me laugh.
（备注：素材中选取的人物是Mr. Beans，大家在练习的时候，针对不同的题目，可以把人物换成不同的对象，比如my father，my friend等等）
