+
+<p>
+Well, I am Israeli-born, but my parents moved to the United States when
+I was one years old until I was five years old (first to
+<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dallas">Dallas, Texas</a>,
+and then to
+<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rockville,_Maryland">Rockville,
+Maryland</a>, where I spoke English with the fellow children. However, after
+I returned to Israel at the age of five, the children there ridiculed me
+for my English, and, as a result, I did not want to speak it, and so forgot
+most about it, and just spoke Hebrew (which is my mother language).
+</p>
+
+<p>
+After that, I had to regain English much more painfully as I learned it
+at school, and from other sources such as
+<a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adventure_game">computerised Adventure
+games</a>, books, films, Television shows, and the Internet. Shortly after
+high school, I felt that my English has dramatically improved. Nonetheless,
+looking back at my English text from a few years back, I cringe at how bad
+it was, and am still being told that some of my writing is non-idiomatic by some
+native speakers.
