    For the language thing, just put something along the lines of 'Native English speaker'. I haven't seen the form so can't say what to put where, but you shouldn't need to prove it.

    For your old company, many people come across this problem as some have work experience going back 10-20 years. I guess the only way around it is if you have any documentation like an old contract, any correspondence between you and them, any old payslips etc. Other than that it would be a case of getting hold of anything you can. At least it will show you tried. You can't work miracles so just give dates you were there and any other info you can remember. Good luck with getting the other letters.
