Kooyeen seems to be having trouble understanding the meaning of "even educated ones" in my post about "there's". Here, I've posted another example of the same expression. It is from the «English Speaking Union’s ( E.S.U.’s ) Nine-Level Scale».

"Level 9 PRE PROFICIENCY

Has a full command of the language, tackling the most difficult tasks with consistent accuracy, fluency, appropriate usage, organisation and comprehension. An exceptional level of mastery, not always reached by native speakers, even quite educated ones."

How would you explain such an expression to someone who did not understand its reference and meaning?

Ooops, then that was a typo for real, sorry, LOL.
My brain kept on skipping the part in the quotation marks because it already labeled that part as "expected to be non-relevant". But it was the "bug". Emotion: smile
