Describe a person who taught you a skill when you were a child
You should say
Who this person was
What the skill was
How you learned it
And explain how you felt about this person
I am going to tell you an experience that my cousin taught me how to speak Japanese, the official language of Japan, when I was a kid. It is spoken by over 100 million people and is deeply influenced by Chinese and English. You can find many Chinese characters in it and many words sound similar to English.
It was during the summer holiday of my fifth grade in primary school when my cousin also returned home from university. He was a language genius, this article is from Laokaoya website, who could easily grasp the grammatical rules and master its pronunciation in a short time. What is more important was that he was also a good teacher, really proficient at explaining the difference between the target language and the native one and giving guidance on how to pronounce.
His teaching method was quite interesting. Instead of giving me a textbook, he took advantage of the Japanese anime I loved. He carefully chose lines from different characters and analyzed them word by word so that I could learn the general principle behind them. And I should say this method was quite effective. After that summer, I had already been able to watch anime without subtitles.
I was quite thankful to him, not only because with this skill, I could enjoy more works that had not been translated into Chinese, but also it gained me an advantage in the job market.
