I am also biting the dust in doing revisions. I got one of my papers rejected 2 weeks ago and I am still revising it prior to new submission. Meanwhile I have to take care of the datamanagement of another study during office hours, so a lot of work during the night these days
I am working in English all the time, while it is not my native language. I doesn't bother me a lot, as my English is good enough to write my manuscripts.
However, I am definitely not as comfortable as in my own language and writing takes more time than usual. Also, I submitted a manuscript to an international journal and got reviewer comments back on my grammar (minor comments).
That would never happen to me in my native languange, so I felt a bit ashamed (I mean; What would that reviewer think of me?), but luckily they are not so harsh on you on that, as they know many authors are from non-English countries. They just provide you the suggestions for corrections and it is all well. Thus, I accept those little flaws in my writing and correct them, as it is not my language and there is nothing I can change on that.
and an interesting discussion about a North-American perspective on doing a phd in Europe:
