You are not a BuzzFeed English major, you are a Buzzfag English major.
The only difference is that you are not from the U.K.
You are the product of an education system in which English is taught as a second language, not as the first.
You grew up in a country where there are few or no books in English, and you did not speak English as a first language.
You may have had to learn English as your second language at school, but you may have never had to take a class in English as part of your academic studies.
You have never heard of the words “tradition,” “class,” “trademark,” “honor,” “the right,” “freedom,” “liberty,” “freedoms,” “diversity,” “rights,” “equality,” “justice,” “compassion,” “sustainability,” “climate change,” “education,” “human rights,” “environment,” “health,” “safety,” “family,” “citizen,” “community,” “workplace,” “economy,” “public safety,” “security,” “reform,” “transparency,” “social justice,” “civil rights,” and more.
You did not grow up in an economy where there is a strong demand for English as the language of instruction, and the English you learned as a child was not the language that was taught to you at home.
You have never even seen the words that you use on a daily basis to communicate with your friends, or the words you use when you are on the phone with them.
You can’t even pronounce the words your friends call you out of context, like “oh, that’s not what I said.”

Your English is the product, in a word, of a country that is, in fact, a European country.
In a culture where people are constantly told that they must learn English to survive, you have no idea what it means to be English as an adult.
You are taught that English is a foreign language, a second-class language, and that your mother tongue is not English.
You feel as if you are being told that your native tongue is a second, inferior, inferior culture that has no right to exist.
You believe that you must learn to speak and read English to be successful.
Your life revolves around learning to speak English.
You cannot read the English-language newspapers in your native language.
If you are able to read the newspapers, you will be taught to write English sentences, like English teachers do in the United States.
You will be told that English teachers have a duty to teach English, but English is not the only language they teach.
You might not even be aware that the English that you learn is taught by people who are not English speakers, or who speak English in a foreign tongue.
The words you are taught as “language” and “culture” are used to control you.
You will never feel like you belong in the world of the people who write and speak English on a regular basis.
You believe that your parents and grandparents who came to America to escape a brutal dictatorship are entitled to your English, as are your children.
You also believe that all other immigrants who came here to escape the Soviet Union were not entitled to English.
There is a reason why so many English speakers consider the U
