Native speaker = teacher?

5 years ago
A lot of people still get confused when it comes to being a teacher or a native speaker. They think that ONLY native speakers are able to teach their own language.

What about doctors, actors, writers from an Anglophone or Francophone country...? Do they teach English/French?

Are ONLY native speakers allowed to teach their own language?

"Native speaker" does not mean "YOU ARE A TEACHER" ๐Ÿ˜„
