A native English speaker is a native speaker of English.

Most native English speakers grew up in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Republic of Ireland, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand.

Native speakers may employ foreigner talk to speak to non-native English speakers.

There exists discrimination against non-native English speakers in the TEFL jobs market. This is illegal under EU law, but enshrined in the visa processes of other countries.
