Forgot My Native Language..

I was born in Mexico and my family and I immigrated to the United States when I was three years old.  I did not learn English until the third grade.  Since then I have flourished in the English language and my vocabulary has expanded tremendously.  I can speak English very articulately and have a vast knowledge of the vocabulary.  I can still speak Spanish and carry on a conversation, but when reading Spanish I do not know what I'm reading.  I can pronounce everything perfectly but have no idea what any of what I'm reading means.  I also have trouble writing Spanish.  I do not know why this is because I am only 17 years old, but I am very sad to say I cannot efficiently read or write my first language.
