This maybe a dumb question but. let's say you are fluent in English and Chinese. you can read both. So if you read 600 words per minute in English text, would that translate to your Chinese reading speed? please tell me your fluent languages.

I'd just as well use me as an example lol English is my mother tongue, I started learning Mandarin since 4 and Malay since I was 7. I'm fluent in both English and Mandarin, but average in Malay (and it's my country's national language >< I feel ashamed 😓).
I started reading novels when I was 10 - both in English and Mandarin. I could read as fast in both languages at that time. But now that I don't read much Mandarin books anymore, I read it slower than the rate I do for English books.1
