Describe a person who speaks a foreign language well. You should say:
Who the person is
What kind of foreign language he /she speaks
Why he/she learns this foreign language
and explain why you think he/she speaks this foreign language well
Looking back, I’ve actually known many people who are very linguistically gifted, but I think the person who impresses me most is my friend Jenny. Jenny is my high school classmate, an exceptionally bright and talented girl who has always been eager to learn about different cultures. So, I guess it’s not actually that surprising to me that Jenny is trilingual, fluent in English, Chinese, and Spanish.
Since Jenny is planning to study abroad in the U.S., she’s been taking English classes ever since primary school. But she decided to self-study Spanish as well since she’s deeply intrigued by Latin America—the culture, the literature, the history, and more. There’s even a chance she may go to a Latin American country someday to take Spanish classes or to do some volunteer teaching. And there’s also the fact that Spanish is the second most widely spoken language in the world, so it’d surely be a useful language to learn.
As for why I think Jenny speaks Spanish well, she’s able to communicate effortlessly in the language. It’s actually stunning to me how quickly she picked it up, though, to be fair, she did enroll in an online Spanish class to get a more structured learning environment and learn all the nitty-gritty grammar and conjugation rules. But it’s amazing how she navigates conversations in Spanish with such finesse now, like she can recognize and use popular slang phrases at the drop of a hat. What’s more, she also knows the fine-grained distinctions between the Spanish spoken in Mexico and Spain. Although she only started learning at the beginning of high school, she sounds almost like a local now!
Anyway, that’s one of many reasons I admire my friend Jenny. She’s definitely a quick learner, and her passion and gift for languages are truly show-stopping.
