It's really not all that surprising that ESL speakers know
English better than American students. They study the English
language in detail as part of their schooling. American
students do not receive much instruction, practical application,
etc. Of course, examples like "there, their, they're" are
homonyms, so the difference is in the writing system rather
than the sound/morphology system.
