a born language lover


Senior Member
-Susan is really good at English and German.What's more,she is learning French now.She told me she was interested in them so that she was willing to work hard.
-Awesome! She is a born language lover!

I made up the conversation and I am not sure "a born language lover" is correct.

Thank you for your help.

    For me it is still correct. It does not have to be a talent. It could be a natural inclination, an aspect of your personality or any trait you were born with, as opposed to one you acquired subsequently.

    Some BNC examples: He was a rebel without a cause, a born mutineer.; He is a born introvert.; I judge you to be a born city person., etc.
