I have never had trouble learning verbal English. (After all, English is just poorly-spoken Dutch). But I have some difficulty to write it. So it was interesting to read that some people write easily but cannot speak or understand so easily.

Just an observation. Pardon this interruption.
I took a summer science course once (summer school, not Covid) and the instructor for the lab portion was Japanese. She couldn't speak English hardly at all. None of us could understand what she was saying, but she would write everything out long hand and in writing, her English was good. But it did shit for good communication.

Trash talk time for me: Native English and French speakers suck at learning other languages. Being a third culture kid, I got to live in different places and I even saw some Americans claiming that they speak "American".

I've talked to (IRL and on the net) a bunch of people from non-English speaking countries in Europe and they all say they're taught "British English, not American English."

I remember a guy on a school bus asking a girl, who was from England, to
'move her fanny over.' She foolishly told the principal at school he said something nasty to her lol.

Sure, there are some different terms between the two, and I suppose the word "fanny" has two different meanings, one less innocent than the other.
