    I was just wondering how many people here speak English as native language.

    My native language is Finnish. :D

    Yes.

    Though it wasn't really my first language: It's the language I consider my 'first' language as I speak it more often than any other language. English is the main language here and I've spoken it since I could speak basically, so I think it's my native language as well.

    Nope, I don't think so. My native language has always been Russian.

    Certainly is.

    Many people I see nowadays can barely type or write the queen's English, even though it is their supposed native language. :)

    Almost had a heart attack!

    My native language is Norwegian. But I speak English fluent, and I can make myself understood in German.

    Dirty mind! I'll never look at that avatar again!

    Anyway, English is my first language, and so far my only language.

    No. I only started learning English when I was 9 or 10 years old. Hebrew is my main language, ofcource.
