1. Philippines (Even their maids speak English) 2. India (Heavy accent but wide vocab.) 3. Singapore (Accent problem) 4. Malaysia (same as Singapore) 5. China (China has the most English professionals in Asia, but sadly, the Chinese's English standards are not in equilibrium - some of them can speak English insanely, some of them don't even know how to pronounce A,B,C. My own experience. God bless.

My vote is for Philippines. If you can see a lot of Koreans and Japanese go to Philippines to learn English. Filipinos can speak English very well, and also name your accent. It can be American or British accent. Filipinos started to learn English when they're in Pre-School and medium of instructions in schools were English.

Being a British colony for more than 200 years, I think, India is the best among the Asian countries for speaking in English.

Well, I have not met all different representatives of each Asian country, but I can get a good understanding from MyLot. But mostly I would judge on the fact that the college I attend part time has several exchange students from different Asian countries. In my own personal experience, Koreans speak the best English, followed by those in the Philippines. But that is just from my own observations from my corner of the world. : )

People from Philippines teach Koreans how to speak English very well. Today, many Koreans don't just go to Philippines to visit but to study also.

For me, it is Philippines. Many Koreans, Japanese, Pakistanis, Iranians, and other nationalities study English Language in the Philippines.

In my opinion, it is the philippines. There are so many institutions in the philippines that educate foreigners in speaking english. A lot of japanese, korean and other foreigners go to the Philippines to learn english. Currently, philippines is an educational hub for the english subjects. Also, there are a lot of call centers based in the Philippines. This simply means companies outsource their call center needs to the Philippines because they speak good english. This is just from what I have observed. Happy mylotting!

This is a very interesting question. I am not so sure about which Asian country speaks the best English, but absolutely it cannot be China. Well in my humble voice, I think that it should be those countries that were once under the control of the Great Britain bringing their language and culture to those countries. They are all able to speak good English. In fact I have heard English spoken by five different Asian countries, which are the Philippines, India, Japan, Korea, Malaysia. I think that I can understand them all. But people from India, the Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore and Hongkong can speak better English than other Asian countries, maybe. Hope you don't mind about my voice, dear friend.

Obviously it is India. Britishers were here for more than 200+ years and they established schools, colleges, universities etc. Millions of Indians also went abroad before independence and learnt in many prestigious institutions like Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard etc. There are thousands of christian missionaries who run schools here and impart education in English. So an average Indian speaks better english than his counter part elsewhere in Asia.
