Assunto:  Re: The native speaker's authority
 
Mensagem:  Miguel, "Somewhat haughty" falls short in describing you. As far as your superiority over other average students, this simply reflects the deplorable state of the preparedness of high school students entering college these days. You might have a different experience were you to compare yourself to serious students such as those found at Babson, Wellesley, Tufts, Brandeis, etc. I suggest you look up "charlatan" in the dictionary, since it seems you havn't yet bothered to do so. I'm not pretending to be or to offer anything other than what I am. You have an unusually strong inferiority complex. I understand this is due to your unfortunate childhood circumstances, but it doesn't play well in America - you should get over it.
