I have a question. I really want to know more about the native english speaking that most clients are asking when you are trying to bid on a job on upworks. i would like to learn so maybe I can bid on a job and get the one that has native english and not get passed up.
One cannot "learn" to be a native English speaker. An argument could be made that for many purposes, someone who has a good ear for languages and who has lived in an English-speaking country for a good number of years and who has interacted near-daily with English speakers is, effectively, a native speaker. (For example, the spouse of a native speaker who has lived in America or the U.K. for 20-plus years might well have achieved native fluency.)
A quick glance at the Original Poster's question/comment, however, suggests that, all good intentions and efforts notwithstanding, she is not yet ready to accurately present herself as a "Native English Speaker." There are small "tells" that show she doesn't have full mastery of the language, and it is these small slips that a potential client is presumably looking to avoid.
