Q: What does ‎can you rephrase "he is inherently great at langues" more casually and naturally? mean?
A: It sounds like they want you to make that sentence simpler/more basic.

A simpler version of "He is inherently great at languages" would just be "He is good at (learning) languages".

"He is good at languages" is more casual, but both sentences are natural. They shouldn't have asked you to rephrase the first sentence 'more naturally' when it's already natural. I think they meant rephrase it 'simpler', because 'inherently' is a reasonably complex word.

*Edit: 'inherently' = 'naturally'. For example, 'he is inherently good at math' = 'he is naturally good at math' or 'he was born good at math'. 'He is inherently great at languages' = 'he is naturally great at languages' or 'he was born great at languages'.
Q: What does i'm sure we could rephrase mean?
A: Use different words, but keep the same meaning. For example, "I'm sure we could rephrase" can also be said as "We can rephrase this".
