Explain why you think he or she speak this foreign language well
Well, a person who speaks a good foreign language is my grandfather who knows much about Russian.
My grandfather was a soldier in the early People’s Republic of China. He learned Russian during his service in the army. You know he was a military reporter and needed to translate the news from Russia. This article is from Laokaoya website. To my surprise, he didn’t seem to have got his Russian language training in a professional school like what we do nowadays but rather taught himself, which was quite amazing for me. You know how hard that learning curve would be without any instructional technology like APPS or even computers during that time.
My grandfather told me that the biggest motivation for him to learn Russian wasn’t the income or something like that. It was purely because he really wanted to bring as much information as possible from Russia to China so that our country could have more opportunities to develop. You know he was being quite patriotic.
Well, one of the reasons why I think he speaks so good Russian is that he has the determination of learning the language well. You know he is never afraid of losing motivation when failures come. Also, I think he always had an interest in knowing something about languages. That interest also gives him the momentum of delving deeper into this language.
