What makes you think his sister's english is so bad? I've only ever seen one interview and she seemed fluent though yes her accent was stronger. She must speak decent English as she attended nursing school in Miami.

Fed's English is far from perfect but his accent is fairly soft, probably from some combination of spending so much time in an English-speaking environment nowdays and also having a good natural ear. No question Fed has a good ear for languages.

I also spoke different languages to my mom and dad at an early age and have a good ear for foreign language as well - I always assumed these were related, but maybe it's partially a natural gift too, lol
