I've never tried speaking to any of them in English.
I'm always amazed when I go to places like Malaysia and the Philippines where I meet so many people who speak two, three or more languages. It's a wonder I haven't heard of more Malaysian greats coaching internationally.

We don't produce a lot of local coaches actually
You cant expect our local coaches to coach internationally when we dont have enough local coaches for ourselves too

Really, it depends on which area you live in.
So my opinion is, when you take the non-Chinese educated Malaysians into account, only 60-70% of Chinese throughout Malaysia can speak in Mandarin.

but so far i havent met any chinese hu cant speak chinese... well, mayb in my area... even my oversea-educated cousin can even speak cantonese n chinese after almost ten years in england...
anyway, forget bout the pecentage debate... i just think dat chinese should know how to talk chinese like one n get to know some of our culture n history even we arent from china..
Even singapore government has started to encourage singaporeans to talk in chinese compare to the used-to-be-very-important-english while china is emerging n developing fast.. well, that's a very different case...
sry for getting out of topic...

I think we are out of topic... this thread is about WCH can speak mandarin...

oh..ok ok...yea i think we kinda get out of the topic...so, hhm....the topic is "WCH can speak mandarin"...ok....so? i don't think it's something big to discuss about. It's pretty normal for a chinese guy to speak mandarin, even if it's broken mandarin,....well, at least they still can understand mandarin, aint it?

I think this thread about WCH can speak mandarin is not important anymore. We shall close the thread.

yeah.. this thread gave a "most-malaysian-chinese-cant-speak-chinese" impression to the others.. actually, things r completely different right here
05-30-2006, 09:34 AM #31
