A Linguist is good at many languages and understands their intricacies such as grammar, figures of speech, ornamentation or dialects. He also has a good ear for spoken words and can grasp the significant parts of a conversation. He is able to read articles and compactify them using rich and precise language. He is also able to organize and express his thoughts elaborately through an essay.
A variety of skills that language training develops over the school years and beyond, can be tested in talented students at an earlier age. Many a times a student may not know the grammar involved but through listening or reading may be aware of what is 'proper' in the language. English, Hindi & Marathi will be the languages used.
