Why do you love speaking Spanish? Give some examples of the important role the Spanish Language plays in your life.
Ah, such a simple question to answer! Spanish is a gorgeous, accessible language, spoken by people the world over. Did you know? Not only is Spanish spoken in mainland Spain, but also in 19 other sovereign nations. It is spoken in countries in North America, Central America, South America, the Caribbean, and even in parts of Africa. I love speaking a language I may take with me as I travel to so many countries. Furthermore, Spanish is a musical, romantic language, full of robust sounds and dialects. Speaking Spanish helps me to travel, cook, communicate, travel and genuinely improve my quality of life. I could not be any prouder to be proficient in speaking Spanish.
Why is Writing such an important skill? What motivates you to want to improve your writing skills?
The four pillars of Literacy in order of difficulty to master include Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing. Since Writing demonstrates a person's mastery of Literacy in a language, I wish to become a strong writer so I may demonstrate to my teachers, colleagues and others in academic or business settings I have attained the highest level of proficiency in English. Many factors motivate me to improve my writing ability. First, I wish to be able to communicate with few errors. I recognize it is important to master Listening, Speaking and Reading in a language prior to being able to master Writing as a Literacy skill. I am motivated to study Writing in order to communicate with native speakers at their proficiency level. Next, I am motivated to improve my skills in Writing because I wish to communicate easily with the many friends and family members I have who are located around the world. Writing is a simple, efficient, lovely way to communicate with others who matter to us. Finally, I am eager to improve my skills in Writing for the same reason I mention above: I want to demonstrate to my teachers, colleagues and others around me I have attained the highest level of proficiency in English.
Which English-based accent is your favorite, and why? For example, do you prefer using British English, North American English or Australian English?
I prefer using North American English for a multitude of reasons. First and foremost, American English is simplest to understand. The accent and articulation North Americans use is crisp and clear. Another reason I favor hearing and using a North American English accent is because I hear it most frequently in the places I most enjoy, such as YouTube videos, movies, music, news and day-to-day conversation. A final reason I most prefer a North American English accent is quite simple. It is the language of Money. Most successful business people worldwide use North American English to communicate. Since I wish to be financially wealthy, I favor having a knowledge and comprehension of a North American English accent and vernacular.
