Sample Answer of Talk about a time when you had to learn a new language

This happened some years back when I graduated from the university. In my country, there is a mandatory one-year youth service to the nation for every graduate from the higher institution where one would be posted to another region of the nation. Meanwhile, the regions in my country speak different languages.

I was posted to the Hausa-speaking part of the country where you hardly see anyone who speaks my language and English Language. I was given a job as a science teacher while I intended to teach the respiratory system. I felt horrible and because of the communication barrier. That single occurrence led me to go on compulsory two months of Hausa language learning which I eventually could speak averagely before I left the zone.

Follow-ups Talk about a time when you had to learn a new language

Questions 1. At what age should children start learning a foreign language?

Answer:- It is advisable for children to begin learning a foreign language at age eight because, at such an age, the brain can easily absorb any knowledge. Furthermore, whatever the children learn around that age always last long, if not forever.

 Questions 2. Which skill is more important, speaking or writing?

Answer:- Speaking skill is more important than any other communication skill because, at any point in time, one would need to talk to express oneself rather than writing down before you can communicate.

 Questions 3. Does a person still need to learn another language if he is good at English?

Answer:- Yes! One may need to learn another language because we have other parts of the world where the English language is not an official language, whereas there may be a time when you will find yourself in those parts of the global village.

 Questions 4. Do you think minority languages will disappear?

Answer:- No, I don’t think so because those from the minority languages speaking area will continue to procreate like the people from the popular area. They will do everything to keep on teaching their younger ones.
