This sentence is stating that you wish to be as proficient in English as one native speaker in general.

"I want to be as proficient in English as native speakers."

This sentence states you wish to be as proficient in English as native speakers of the language overall.

The first sentence has a singular meaning while the second sentence is plural and includes a larger demographic of people (in this case it would be native English speakers as a whole rather than just one).

"researches" doesn't exist

"The research is in English"

Q: Qual é a diferença entre I've been good at English e I'm good at English ?
A: Actually I don't think "I've been good" means that you are not good anymore.

"I am good" is only referring to here and now.

"I've been good" means that you are good now, but it also means that you were good in the past and you continue to be good.
For example, you can have a conversation like this:

A: Hey, are you good at English?
B: What a stupid question. I've been good at English. I have been living in the US since I was a kid!

(You can also say "I am good at English," but in this situation, B wants to emphasize that they have been good at English for a long time.)

Other questions about "English"

Q: How to say in English - растерянный?
For example : I just woke up, and I'm sitting, sipping coffee, and I don't know what to do, inattentive, maybe with slow reaction.
How can I say - I'm little ... . ?

Another situation : I came to the parking, and I don't see my car in the place where I parked it.
In this situation most likely I'll be растерянный.

One more situation : I went out of the forest and I see 10 identical roads that lead to no one knows where.
I'd be 100% растерянный in this situation.
How to say it?
Just confused?
A: Well, google translate says "bewildered", and in the second and third cases, that would be a good word to use to describe the situation. "Baffled" also fits (it's like, you can't believe what's happening/it's so weird that you're confused how it could be happening)

But for the first example, I think there's better words out there. For the tired one, I'd say "you're a little out of it", or you're "zoning out", you're "still kind of dazed"
