"my first language"

When I passed TOEFL first time I was told then,
English was my second language !

Now they say,I don't have an accent,I wonder why?
But I know English is my second language.

I wonder what was my first language while growing up.
I guess silence was my first language while growing up.

My mother was sad when I was a child. Other children my age was making noise and doing baby talk, but I refused and stayed silent. The day I decided to speak was the day I knew the words and could say them perfectly. One could say that my obsession for words started before I could even speak.
