    You realize Hispanics are given IQ test in "SPANISH" the 2nd language barrier does not exist here. It rarely exist in school scores (except English aptitude) because 2nd language Hispanic students are given test in their native tongue

      I explained this before, but didn't get posted.

      In my case, my test was taken in english, and the same in friend's cases some decades ago.

      And some trasnlated test we took back then had several mistakes that made the questions harder to comprehend (in some case worse that a current google translation).

      Even people could declare themselves english speakers, and they'd even use it in daily life, but there are some important nuances regarding a non-native language that people are not aware off, until they take the test.

      It's not the same at all to take a real native language test, native from the start, not translated, and also, not the same if you take it in english when you use on daily basis, but it's not your native language.
