Describe the time when you first talked in a foreign language

What you talked about
And explain how you felt about it
Well, it’s been quite a while. I remember it was in the third year of my primary school that I started to talk in a language that was not my mother tongue.
I was actually in a classroom where our English teacher prepared us a group activity in which we were required to introduce ourselves in English with three simple sentences in front of the group members.
Unlike the ordinary lessons, it was a pilot one where some other teachers in our school also participated in. But, this article is from Laokaoya website, they just sat at the back of the classroom, observing our teacher’s teaching and the students’ learning.
Honestly, I couldn’t remember the whole three sentences, but I do remember two of them, which were My name is Jack, and I come from Harbin. You know, I had actually made two mistakes before I blurted out the correct words.
Well, I was quite nervous at that time. The main reason was that there were many teacher observers in our classroom, which made me feel like we were criminals being watched. But, I also felt a great sense of achievement as that’s the first time I officially talked in English!
