Sample answer of Talk About a Time when You First Talked in A Foreign Language
In the contemporary world, people are curious about leaking different kinds of extraordinary skills. Like, languages, mechanical skills, data-oriented skills, and many more. Today I would like to talk about one such skill I learned and have used years before. That is English. Nowadays, language English has a vital role in every ones’ life.
Because it is a global language and lion part of the population around the world is talking the same language. But, at that time, I was not aware of that. Along with other native languages, I tried to learn the basics of English, and in addition, I had the confidence that I could easily interact with anyone easily.
After completing my graduation, I got an opportunity to be part of an interview conducted by a multinational company in Chennai. I was eager to attend that interview because it was my first interview. When the official called my name, I was a little worried, and I realized that my confidence was slightly condensed than before, and I realized that I was not at all good at English.
As I remember, there were three officials on the interview board, and after the ice-breaking session, they shot the questions rapidly in English. Still, I remember, most of my answers were imprudent. But, I tried to answer their questions in English. They have appreciated me for my attainable attempt. Unfortunately, I did not get that job. Still, I felt very motivated by this incident. I do not have any hesitation to interact with anyone after that.
