You chose to go to an English-speaking university, and it's not as if you are going to be able to put at the top of every paper you ever publish "I am a non-native speaker, please bear this in mind as you try to interpret what I say". There are also standard industry styles. For example, there is an Army Writing Style. I personally suck at it. I am a little verbose, and prone to use the passive case. However, the correct approved method of writing can be found in Army Regulation 25-50, and older Dept. of the Army Pamphlet 600-67. If I do not use the correct doctrinal form of writing, I am marked down. It doesn't matter that I was raised in Ireland with anything from different spelling conventions to manners of syntax. I either follow the standard, or I don't. Currently engaged in a lengthy debate over on the ask historians sub-reddit on the matter of just how much context is necessary at a tank museum. I seem to be fighting a minority position.
