    How many people who are English can actually speak English properly. I bet many more foreigners can.
    Tens of millions of English people...
    A couple of billion foreigners...

    I doubt your claim is correct.

    375 million people around the world speak English, and there's on 65 million people in uk, of which nly 98% can speak English. Also the test for English some English speaking people couldn't even answer the questions, forget where I saw that now.

    Firstly, English speaking can include foreigners
    Secondly, that means nothing - So what they didn't answer an exam question, some don't care enough or pay attention...
    Thirdly, the figure should be 100% English speaking.
