Kami boleh cakap org puteh!

Malaysia boleh! Although there's much (deserved) grumbling about our national English standards, it happens that we're actually in the first spot for English proficiency in the Asia region for countries where English is not the mother tongue.

Seoul (The Korea Herald/ANN) - South Korea ranked third out of Asian nations according to an English Proficiency Index announced on March 30 by Education First, a global education center. Go here for the full rankings.

Korea, with an overall ranking of 13th, overtook Japan (at 14th) and Taiwan at (25th).

From 2007 to 2009, Education First conducted online English tests on 2.3 million working adults all from over the world. English proficiency was tested in four categories - grammar, vocabulary, reading and listening.

Among Asian countries, Korea's 54.19 points followed only Malaysia (9th) with 55.54 points and Hong Kong (12th) with 54.44 points. Koreans' English proficiency can be considered relatively high considering that Korea's official language is not English. Malaysia and Hong Kong, however, use English as one of their official languages.

The overall English proficiency of an average Korean adult also rated “above average." South Korea placed among the top tier nations by ranking 13 out of 44 non-native countries.
