German term or phrase: es
Die beiden sitzen in jenem Winter 1953 zusammen im Hörsaal, sie muss keine Sorge haben, "dass er mir einen Kuss auf die Backe knallt". Sie lehnt sich über die Sessellehne, Zeigefinger in die Höhe: "Er war das reinste Latein", sagt ***es,*** lässt sich zurückfallen, lacht und kichert mädchenhaft, der Lampenschirm hinter ihr vibriert. "Wissen Sie, es gibt nicht so viele Leute, die so gut Latein sprechen."

What does "es" refer to in this context?
