    If you’re reading this article, odds are you’re an English speaker. But is it your first language or did you learn it as a second one? As one of the most common languages in the world, English can guarantee you can get by pretty much anywhere. But did you know that most English speakers actually learn it as a second language?

    Many schools around the world teach English as a second language, but their success rates vary. Which countries produce the most fluent non-native English speakers? The EF (Education First) organization has conducted research to provide an answer.

    Taking the top spot on the rank are northern European countries, with The Netherlands leading the way. Sweden, Denmark, and Norway are not too far behind and also produce fluent and proficient English speakers. At the bottom of the chart, Middle Eastern countries like Iraq, Oman, and Saudi Arabia have the lowest proficiency scores.

    Before you choose your next vacation destination based on the English speakers you’ll come across, there’s something you should know. The research involved 2.3 million volunteers from 100 countries who took an online test. Factors like internet connection speed and the number of volunteers can influence the results. This means that countries with slow internet or fewer volunteers may have skewed the results in some way. Science isn’t always conclusive, after all!
