A. People who have learned to speak a foreign language will have appeared foolish to fluent speakers of that language.
B. People who only recite memorized sentences in a foreign language will never learn to speak that language.
C. People who have not learned to speak a foreign language have not appeared foolish to fluent speakers of that language.
D. People who do not make mistakes when uttering original sentences in a foreign language do not appear foolish to fluent speakers of that language.
E. When combined with other exercises, reciting memorized sentences in a foreign language can be an effective means of practicing to speak that language.
