Right, this is not a problem if you manage to read and write in english or any of its dialects, the only problem is when you have to find material for teaching to a non english speaking audience. Very common in Latin America.

Yes and no. The language of the internet is
American, which resembles but is not identical
to English.

I am not saying this because I am English.
I am partly Welsh, for a start.

More seriously: Please do note that Statalist
itself has no rule about people posting in English.
People have sometimes used other languages,
and there is, as said, absolutely no rule
against that. Naturally, I guess that many
people whose first language is not English
are choosing English for their postings because they suspect
that will maximise their chance of getting
a reply, but that is a Bayesian judgement,
not the law.
