Your English is understandable, but I have a few suggestions about how you could change your text:

(You could start with: - It can be a little bit strange)

  • for users for whom English is not a native language // for users whose native language/mother tongue is not English

  • to go to the immersion page and to start translating//to be expected to translate into English.

  • After some revisions by others, we find out about//discover the errors we made. In fact, you could say we are learning English. // , which effectively means that we are learning English

  • By the way, could someone please review my English in this discussion?

I've come up with two alternative texts. The first is probably the closest to your text. The second has some structural changes and some alternative words.
