similar thing happened to me, I'm English and moved to America and was told that my English was amazing considering I'd just moved to America from England. Turns out the girl thought that the national language of Europe was French.

No, it could entirely be true. A tourist who asked me directions told me that I spoke very good English. Uhm, I was born in Canada, spoke English my entire life and have a degree in English literature?

Thank you for Stereotyping Americans as idiots. Makes me feel sooo much better about the world and knowing there's good people like to in it.

@9, People should not be allowed to be that stupid. I hate when people say Americans can't speak properly. Like, what does that even mean? Is it our slang, our accents, incorrect grammar?? Haha I get so self-conscious when I talk to foreigners. I always feel like I'm annoying them.

Are you not American? If you look foreign or have an accent he probably just stupidly assumed you hadn't lived in America long. Otherwise, your English must be pretty freaking bad.
