    My native language is Spanish. I'm grateful for that because I can read Borges and Quixote. It's such a beautiful language, but I learned English because my natural instincts told me to do so

    I voted no, since it isn't my mother-tongue, but I would say that I speak and write English with much more ease and ability than my first language, due to my life's circumstances.

    english language

    english is my mother tongue and my only language. as an american i believe english should be the official language of the united states, but i think it would be wonderful if everyone could speak and understand all languages.

    Uhmmm... I'm a Spanish speaker, but for some reason I've always felt more at ease writing in English

    Yes, it is. (Born in America)

    It is indeed my first, and currently only language. I am not pleased with my monoglot status and hope one day to be fluent in at least two other languages.
