Uhm.. yeah? I learned English and French in Canada. Average people in the workplace and University profs never gave me a hard time. Who did give me a hard time? The school teachers and even then, the non-English and non-French teachers. BTH, I think they start nitpicking if they hear or know it's not your first language.
Kind of their job....

I wouldn't say it happens only to kids whose first language is other than the official one(s). Or maybe it depends on the education system, who knows. But I wouldn't start from this premise. I'd try to figure out if the criticism was justified.
