    Smile English

    Is this sentence correct?? Is the use of 'in' two times correct?

    You are already very good in the language I would like to converse with you in.

    Thanks!

    Re: English

    No, the second "in" is unnecessary and incorrect.

    You are already very good in the language, and I would like to converse with you.
    In any event, the sentence is awkward and stilted and I would use the name of the language instead of "the language".
    You are fluent in English, and I would like to converse with you.
