language change according to gender.

Elle adore la culture britannique, et parle bien anglais.

  As in this sentence we are talking about Cecile(female), so why we use "anglais" instead of "anglaise"

Hi Jaidev,

It is because anglais ( English - the language) is masculine.

But you would say, 

Judith est anglaise  et elle parle le français couramment Judith is English and she speaks French fluently

Hope this helps!
