Model Answer

It would probably be French. This language holds great attraction for me, probably because it’s the language of love, and I LOVE the sound of French.

However, as far as I know, there are many things about this language that frustrates a Vietnamese person. For example, French has a very different system of sounds, grammar and vocabulary, making it very hard for us to get correct pronunciation, remember words and form sentences.

I think I’m going to struggle at first but with some persistence I will get past the most difficult period. After that everything would gradually become easier. Especially when you start to understand movies or articles in a new language, you have this huge sense of achievement and that moves you forward even faster.

So my advice for anyone who struggles to learn a new skill is, invest a lot of efforts at the start; the moment you get the hang of something you’ll be motivated and just keep going from there.
