To me, my mother tongue is Arabic but I do speak English very well thanks to working hard on practicing with English native speakers sometimes and English learners in the other times
what I do believe in the whole journey into learning any language is that learner should be acting like a child who says things without caring about his mistakes if he started talking.
to be honest, one of the most main reasons that made keep posting in this forum is my desire to improve my writing skills, even though i knew it very recently and fell in love with it :).
i will get back to you after seeing your interactions.

I speak French & German, my native language being Luxembourgish, because they are both official languages in my country. I also speak Latin because it was taught in school, alongside English & French. I speak Japanese after having been there a couple of times and Dutch because I live in the Netherlands.0

i think if you speak language A from birth and then spend time studying language B in that country or in your country with people who are native speakers , you are certain to learn it if you put the hours in , even this of distinctly average intellect or with medium levels of motivation will learn all languages eventually if the circumstances are correct. the only way you wouldn't is if you hang out in an expat community and never need to use the language.0
