Sample Answer of Describe a Thing You Did to Learn Another Language
A few years back, I was posted to the northern part of the country for an official assignment which was slated to last for two years. Most people living in this part of the world belong to another tribe which is totally different from mine. Therefore, they speak a language called Hausa which I don’t understand at all; consequently, I had to learn it so I could communicate effectively there because the work I was appointed to carry out requires that I interact closely with people Who can only be possible if I communicate better. In order to learn this language, I had to attend tutorial classes for Hausa speaking for two months. Although I was unable to understand advanced Hausa, the lessons helped me to understand the basics of Hausa and communicate well during my stay. Therefore I am so glad about the learning process because new skill has been added to my skills.
