Describe someone who speaks a foreign language well
You should say:
Who this person is
What kind of foreign language he/she speaks
Why he/she learned this foreign language
And explain why you think he/she speaks this foreign language well
Well to be honest, my flatmate Jill popped into my mind the moment I saw this question. She’s like really geeky, in a good way, though, you know? She’s like a total English geek. I mean, if you listen to her talking, with your eyes closed(独立主格), there is no way you would know that she’s actually not a native English speaker. She’s got all the tricks (她会所有那些技巧) – pronunciation,intonation, even those um… slang words (难懂的俚语)! Yes that’s the word. You see, the most amazing thing about her is that she has never ever travelled abroad. She has always wanted to go to a foreign university, which must have been motivation for her study. She managed to master the language basically through watching TV shows. I mean, how about that! (口语用法”厉害吧!”)Sometimes I join her, too, you know, when she watches those series, like Game of Thrones, you know, the big hit (大热门), SHIELD, 2 Broke Girls, Sherlock… You name it. She’s not that picky about which kind of shows to watch. Besides series she also watches talk shows like the Ellen show,Graham Norton, Jimmy Kimmel, and so on. Sometimes I find those talk shows really hard to follow,because… I don’t know, maybe they just contain loads of cultural and political topics with whichI’m not that familiar. But to Jill, they are just so easy. The reason why she speaks English so well… I guess it’s just pure love for language and culture. They kid you not (这话是真的), interest is always the best teacher.
