Um. Yes. Yes, I have. Dude, you're not the only chinese person on these boards so stop acting like living there makes you some sort of cultural expert. And don't underestimate the other chinese sub-groups. Seriously, you have some sort of superiority complex.

Cantonese is more useful in the various chinatowns around the world, mainly because it's Hong Kong immigrants that hang out there.
Does anyone speak Tsiew Chow or however the hell you spell it?
Is it just me or do the Chinese have an easier time speaking English than, I guess, every other Asian country? (not counting India, sorry)
U mean Teochew?
Yeah I do.
The only diff between Hokkien and Teochew is a few pronoun and maybe Hokkien sound more crude.
Well about Chinese have an easier time speaking English... I think it boils down to indivual... I'm a chinese speaker but my english is not as strong. Language... This type of things very hard to say dez...
Dun bother about MojoMunKeez. Treat him as a transparent object here. Maybe he/she just trying to add his post count by try to build up tension...

Oh, it's called Teochew? I learn something new every day. I only typed it as it sounded in Cantonese.
I think people get the impression that the Chinese seem to be better at English because there are more of them -- we tend to immigrate more than Asians, I think. My English is pretty good (at least I hope so), but my Chinese just isn't up to par. I'm trying to brush up on it, but it's not really working. The words just slip out of my head if I try to remember them.
