    to write English (well)/to write (well) in English

    Are both of the following sentences natural for a native Englis speaker? Is there a difference in meaning?

    1) How do I learn to write English (well)?
    2) How do I learn to write (well) in English?

    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    They are both OK, but the second one is probably more usual.

    Is "speak English" in a similar context more usual than "speak in English"?
