How do native English speakers learn English?
The same way non-native English speakers learn their language.
The difficulty of a language depends on many things. Native speakers of English can learn Spanish with less difficulty than Native Korean speakers, since English is closer to Spanish than Korean is. On top of that some languages are considered easy to learn to speak, but difficult to learn to write and vice versa. An example would be Mandarin Chinese, from the perspective of Native English speakers it is considered easy to learn to speak…
English has the most speakers with approximately 2 billion speakers worldwide or 30% of the world's population. Most people mistake Mandarin for having the most speakers with 935,000,000 speakers, but Mandarin is the language with the most native speakers. English has the most speakers total. Only about 600,000,000 native speakers for English.
A native English speaker is a person whose first language they learn as a baby is English, so its not something you can become unless you are born to it. If your antive language is another language you can lean to speak English like a native by listening carefully to English speakers and practicing saying words the way they do.
Only French children should be made to learn French. While children should be made to learn a foreign language, that language should be one of the wolds major languages and French is not one of these. For native English speakers, Spanish or Chinese would be more appropriate, for non English speakers, English should be the language taught.
If you are simply counting by native speakers, the population of Russian native speakers is higher than that of all other native speakers within Europe (followed by German, French, and English). However, English has effectively become a lingua franca across Europe and has the highest number of cumulative native speakers and secondary speakers across Europe.
