        ► Picture b: Their relationship is breaking up.

        ► Picture c: They're having an argument. 

    2. I will talk to the person I believe the most such as my mother or my best friend who are the ones always give me the best advice whenever I have trouble.

    Question: Hoa is my only friend at school. She’s also the only person I completely trust. Two weeks ago, I told her! was very unhappy and lonely, and that I even wanted to drop out of school. She promised not to tell anyone ... but then she told our teacher about it. We had an argument and | stopped talking to her. Was I right?
    (Van Ha)

    Counsellor: Dear Ha, I understand your feelings. But think of it this way: maybe Hoa was really afraid that you'd drop out of school. She didn’t know what to do to help you. I'm sure she just wanted to help you in her own way, even if it's not the way that you wanted. Try to reconcile with Hoa, talk to her about it, and I hope you'll be good friends again.
    Good luck!

    Question: In my class, the girls are on good terms with all the boys, except me. The girls just don’t even notice me, and the boys make jokes about it. I think that’s because I’m short and fat, and girls don't find me attractive. I feel very lonely. Please help me.
    (Quang Nam)

    Counsellor: Well, don't worry too much. Everyone has qualities that make them attractive to other people. A person's true value does not lie in his appearance, but in his achievements and contributions to the community. I don’t think it's your physical appearance that makes the girls stay away from you. If you study hard and become an excellent student, girls may notice you and ask you for help. Meanwhile, you should try building up friendships. Take the initiative and engage your classmates in friendly conversations. Ask them questions to find out what they like to talk about — a song, a film or something else — and then discuss that topic. I hope that will help.

     

    ĐÁP ÁN:

    4) Read the newspaper column again and answer the questions.

    2. What did Ha tell Hoa two weeks ago?

    3. Why did they have an argument?

    4. Does the counsellor agree with Ha's reactions?

    5. What does Quang Nam think about his own appearance?

    6. Why do his male friends make jokes about him?

    7. What does the counsellor advise Nam to do?

     

    ĐÁP ÁN:

    1. They are close friends. 

    2. Ha told Hoa about her depression and her intention to drop out of school. 

    3. Because Hoa promised to keep Ha's story secret, but then she told the teacher about it. 

    4. No. She tries to explain why Hoa told the teacher about Ha's problem, and advises Ha to talk to Hoa again. 

    5. He thinks he is short and fat, and girls don't find him attractive. 

    6. Because Nam does not have a good relationship with the girls in his class. 

    7. The counsellor advises Nam to focus on his studies, become an excellent student and learn how to start a friendly conversation with his classmates. 

     

    5) If you were the counsellor in charge of the advice column, what would you advise Ha and Nani to do? Discuss with a partner.

    ĐÁP ÁN:

    If I were the counsellor, I would assess Ha's dilemma and give her the following advice: Despite the fact that Hoa broke her pledge and informed their teacher about the problem, it's possible that Hoa was truly terrified of dropping out and doing something harmful. She did it because she wanted to help Ha and she didn't know how else to handle the situation. I believe Ha should think more clearly and seek reconciliation with Hoa. The two people should rekindle their friendship.

    In terms of Nam's problem, I don't think Nam should be too concerned. Everyone has unique characteristics that make them appealing to others. The genuine worth of a person is determined by his accomplishments and contributions to the community, not by his appearance. Nam needs to think positively about himself. He should concentrate on his studies and strive to be a good student so that girls will notice him. In the meantime, he should work on forming acquaintances and learning how to strike up a polite chat with his classmates.
