Hi mixedasian, I saw your other post also in the other thread,

I would say Singapore. Mainly is due to English language being used as the main language.

As far as I know Singapore is the only Asian country with English being the main language.

Other than that, infrastructure, etc, is excellent.

Wont have much problems in adjusting....

Very globalized city....and friendly to immigrants, easy to get permit, work permits, residency permit, and even citizenship (due to low number of natural birth, immigration is encouraged and made easy).

Except one thing is that the cost of living can be rather high. It's not like Bangkok or Jakarta or Manila.
And if you move to Singapore preferably there should be some skills, to get a job, otherwise it will be tough.

Singaporeans and Malaysians are way better in english (literature) compared to Filipino ~ they just suck at pronouncing the word correctly, but their written english is like ... utterly impressive ... Filipinos have the least accent compared to other asian people, thats why they 'sound' better to english speaker - non oral english hands down Singapore and Malaysia. Plus, mandarin is easily the second or third language in both countries.

^ Singaporeans have this soft pronunciation with Chinese accent when speaking English and you know how that would sound like. Filipinos' pronunciation of English words on the other hand is hard and very syllabize, thus easilly understood. Speaking of literature, I think all 3 are in the same level.

Filipinos are far better in English grammar than White Americans and you would notice that only if you're Filipino. Not a superiority complex, just a fact.

that's because american public schools don't teach good proper English. I know, i attended two different types of schools growing up. the first taught European English which is much better. i believe that's why. they learned the european version instead.

Did you mean European English = British English? I just want to know.

Filipinos use the American English version. It's just that most Filipinos are very anxious to make mistake when writing or speaking in English. But of course mistakes are inevitable when using a language that you're not fluent with.

I agree with you on this, American public schools and even private in general don't teach good proper English. Strict education imposed among Asians is the reason why we do better.

fortunately, my early education was based on british english. so i had a good head start. it makes it easier to learn languages as well too.

What a silly topic, any Viet who is rich enough to immigrate, they would choose the U.S, Canada, Australia or Europe to immigrate to, not in a million year to another Asian country kiss.gif

You don't get it.

This is an mixed asean who has never been to VN to understand what it is like. So she is wondering about the prospect of going to an asean nation that is still retaining its own culture, not being Americanized, yet speaking English. I already recommended her N. Korea, but she turned it down on the ground that it is a communist country. embarassedlaugh.gif

You are killing her with this:
