Sample Answer of Talk About a Time when You First Talked in A Foreign Language

I speak two languages, Hindi and English. Hindi is my native language learned when at home, but talking about English, I developed speaking English at my preschool. At the age of 6 with my teacher Ms. Anjana who was my class teacher then. Being young and a determined learner ever since I was born, she taught us how to make new sentences and put different words into speech.

A plethora of competitions was held at the school level, where the students were asked to participate in activities like debate and extempore. As I mentioned, I was an enthusiast back then, so I participated in various activities. I started to develop a good hold on my foreign speech at a very early age due to these Competitions.

I remember the first time I took part and was given the topic to speak about my friends for a few continuous minutes in grade 4, and I Was awarded the first prize. The feeling that I experienced was a sense of achievement at a very early age. My parents were so proud of me, and to celebrate the first victory, they took me out for dinner later that evening at my favorite Food Joint.
