Who speaks English better?
- Who cares?
For some reason Chinese people believe that they can speak English better than Japanese people. I’ve heard this from far too many Taiwanese students and friends. I have Chinese friends and Japanese friends and I really don’t think this is true. In fact, I would say that while both make similar grammar mistakes (forgetting to use the past tense, misuse of articles, etc) my Japanese friends’ pronunciation is better.
Anyone else have any opinion on this? No matter what I tell my Taiwanese friends, they all claim that “everyone knows Chinese can speak English better”. Nothing that I say will convince them otherwise.
