I'm from Brazil, whose native language are portuguese.
I understand english very well, but have trouble to speak and write a more complex text.
I use google to search words or expressions that i don't understand.
And yes english is nowadays the "world native language", and this starts after the Second World War, USA becomes the more powerful nation on the world and everyone "suffer" from it's influences, it's the "American way of life".
Here in Brazil, every job that is not a "poor job" says that is mandatory to know English.
I don't have a problem with this, on the contrary, i think that's really important for the internet, with a "world native language" everyone can communicate with each other, it's good for the market and it's good to pass information, so it's good for everyone.
