    Run-on sentence

    Please edit this run-on sentence:

    It is a contradiction that a native English speaker who could handle their mother tongue skillfully would not like to use rude English hence ESL students lost the chance to learn what is rude/improper talking in English while the native speaker hopes what the students talk keeps the virtue of proper English.

    I have been starring at this monster of a sentence for some time. What are you trying to say? That native teachers hope to keep ESL students from using improper language?

    Welcome, Job.

    It would help if you could show us how you would make the sentence better. What are your thought?
