Hi! I was looking up 速読 and came across this sentence. Maybe I am wrong, but I thought 国語 is used to refer to Japanese language/literature classes taken by native Japanese speakers. So I was confused by the references to "English questions" in the English translation of the sentence.

Yes. You're right.

Literally, 国語 means "our country's language", but I've never heard it used for any language other than Japanese, except jokingly.
