USA born, native English speakers how does it feel knowing many of us who don't speak English as our first language write it better than you?

Update:

Not just write, but also speak and read. (There wasn't enough time to write all that)

As for Spanish being a white language, just an FYI but not everybody who speaks a non-English language speaks Spanish. And besides isn't English a white language also?

Update 2:

That's quite impressive electricpole - though why Russian if I may ask? Also if knowing U.S. History you'd know people who come here at an older age have often struggled to learn English whether if their first / dominant language is Chinese, Italian, Creole, whatever.

Update 3:

rick29148 is still trying to learn how to say " Where is the nearest gay/ladyboy bar " in Thai.

    What the HELL does THAT question have to do with DOGS❓?❓?

    "USA-born" I understand.

    But there aren't many "native English speakers" there - most of them speak one of the several Yanklish patois. Indeed, in "My Fair Lady" Professor Henry Higgins: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B3Vx0VvcQyY

    points out that the USA is one of the places where "they" haven't spoken a word of English in years,

    Oh really? I consider that there is PLENTY of time to write.

    What there ISN'T plenty of in the first field is ROOM.

    ● "As for Spanish being a white language"

    Where on EARTH do you get the idea that a language has a COLOUR - such as white for English?

    You must be a racist to make any such mental connection! (No wonder you hide your avatar & user-name behind the cowardly bowler-hatted blue-faced [Anonymous] !) And you will have problems explaining how the quiet but-far-from-"white" Samoan boy who was my secondary school rival in 1955-56-57 went on to become a Professor of English at the university of my nation's largest city! And that his first 2 novels were made into films in my country, his 3rd novel won our NZ Book of the Year award in 1980, and a later book won the Asia-Pacific Commonwealth Writer’s Award in 1992. You would have HATED his 7-syllable first name - but he was kind and used his 2 syllable English middle-name in conversation.

    LOL. If you say so, Julio.

    BTW, hope you can write it well enough to communicate to your immigration lawyer.

    Well, good for you,,anybody that has done schooling studying English and writing can usually do better than those that haven't.

    I am certainly not impressed.

    I know I have a great many skills you could never fathom or grasp.

    You might think that this is a big achievement, but the truth is that many people have been brainwashed into thinking that English is a superior language spoken by superior people.

    don't be so arrogant. Saying the US can't write English well is disrespectful and possibly prejudice. Just because you're from another country, doesn't mean you're any better than USA born native English speakers. Please be accepting of all people just as you demand to be accepted. Come on! Grow up! use your head!

      You obviously haven't noticed how many people on here are unable to distinguish between simple words in their own language.

    Not just Americans but English people too.

    They hate it...I've been insulted and even threatened just for pointing out their spelling or grammar errors.

    Rules of grammar are like any other set of rules for anything else. Some get them, so don't, some give a fig, judge others by their particular skill set, interest. Others do not. Much like those who take pride in their appearance, that is their thing. While other don't give a crap how they look or what they wear.

      They don't, oh one might be judged on them and such. But in the larger scheme of things, they do not really matter.
