Sample Answer of Talk About a Time when You First Talked in A Foreign Language
A foreign language is mandatory to learn while talking with someone formally, and it plays a crucial role in everyone’s life. So everyone should learn various languages apart from their native language. Here I am going to describe a time when I first talked in a foreign language. Actually, during my graduation, when I was doing my bachelor’s degree in 2019, I cleared some tests for an interview, and I got selected for the interview.
Initially, I got apprehensive about how can talk in English as I am a resident of Punjab, so I was much familiar with the Punjabi language at that time, and moreover, my background was Punjabi. When I grew up, day by day, I came to learn many words and pronunciations of English then I got a bit more confident.
But at the time of an interview, I was much depressed and panicked. How can I clear this. It was a major task for me. Then my friend came to me and consoled me that you are brilliant and intelligent who cleared a test and she also told me that now you have to clear an interview without any hesitation.
She also provided an abundant amount of tips, and I learned and grasped quickly, and after that, I felt more confident. On the day of the interview, when I sat down in front of the interviewer, I never felt daunted. I talked in English well, and the interviewer was also impressed by my answers.
I felt over the moon at that time because my interview was done successfully. Fortunately, I got an offer letter for joining. That was immense happiness and a pleasurable moment for me, and I will never forget that day that made me memorable. Now I can easily talk with the foreigners in my college and never hesitate to speak anything.
