I am writing my cover letter and currently I am writing "I am also a quick learner; I was able to learn Python in two days." But it doesn't seem to be very smooth. How can this phrase be better?
Two meanings: I am also a quick learner; I was able to learn Python in two days.
to mean and, use the semi-colon
to mean consequently, use the colon
It depends on what you want to say, actually.
Perhaps separate your points by simply saying, "I am also a quick learner. For example, I was able to learn Python in two days."
Also since you're writing a resumé cover letter, you might want to qualify that you learned "the basics of Python" in two days rather than "everything there is to know about Python" which is what your statement seems to imply. Just a suggestion. Hope it helps.
