Describe a person who is good at a foreign language.
You should say:
– Who that is
– What languages that person speaks
– How you knew he was good at that foreign language
– Why you think that person’s ability to speak that language is impressive
(Who that is) As a student majoring in linguistics, everyone around me has a high command of at least one foreign language which might be English, Mandarin or French, which are three most popular foreign languages learnt in Vietnam. However, it is John, who is able to use all these three languages fluently, that I admire the most so far.
(What languages that person speaks) Well, John has acquired a high degree of proficiency in English, Mandarin and French. He is the only person I know that is able to speak fluently up to three different languages. He was brought up bilingual as his father is British and his mother is Vietnamese. He started to learn Mandarin and French at the same time when he was my classmate in grade 8.
(How you knew he was good at that foreign language) John is the president of the International Exchange Club of my university, of which I am a member. I, as a vice president, have cooperate with John to carry out cultural exchange sessions with students from many countries, notably France and China. That he used French to communicate with French students and Mandarin to talk to Chinese ones left me astonished and when he used both languages at the same time, I was at a loss for words because it was such a jaw-dropping experience for me.
(Why you think that person’s ability to speak that language is impressive) It is common knowledge that many a student struggles to learn English, which is deemed the universal language as it is used for all official international documents. While learning English alone is a great challenge for us, he can study French and Chinese, which are of no relations to each other. Therefore, I would say that his ability to use up to 3 foreign languages can leave anybody impressed.
