Answer
How to be a "fighter pilot" first requires excellent grades. My first suggestion is that you make an extra effort to correct your deficiency in English. In either country, you should go to your local teachers to discover how best to proceed toward your goals.
The best way for a young person to "learn to fly" is with a local pilot interested in your progress. You should "hang around" your local airport.
Candidly, being a USAF "fighter pilot" is probably not in the cards for any aspiring youngster from another country. The best path for you is probably seeking that goal in your own country. Once you achieve the basics, there may be opportunity to attend USAF professional schools.
Being a "fighter pilot" is an exacting, dangerous, over-rated profession that soon will become less desirable as "cool" employment. If you just want to kill people, why not try to be a virtual pilot, operating unmanned vehicles? There is a great future there.
