i like to say i can because my city if full of koreans and vietnamese and i'm filipino. so for me, filipinos, koreans and vietnamese people are pretty easy to figure out. i some what can get chinese and i want i say i can get japanese but honestly i havent see alot of japanese people. khmer and laos i get confused with another ethnicity. it might just be the people i've seen. but yahhhh i wanna say i can tell the difference.

i can tell when i hear them speak.
i perfectly know what koreans sound like when talking,
japanese too causee i speak it.
&chinese are the easiest for me cause they use a lot of Z's.
ohh & i also can tell if their vietnamese, i have a vietnamese friend so im pretty used
to hearing them talk.
& their appearance can sometimes be tricky for me, so its
easier for me to just hear them talk & i can easily figure it out:]]

nope. but i do know if they re asian or non-asian.but it's easier to recognize the ethnic group of asian women than of asian men. for me anyway. maybe because i meet more asian women than men. i work at an airport and flight attendants and gate agents are mostly women. i'm black and i've been mistaken for mexican, puerta rican, chinese and korean because i got slanted eyes, yellow skin and fine hair. you just can't tell by looking sometimes. but i don't ask unless they ask first, because i find that rude.

no...unless i heard them speak their language
Most koreans has really deep voice, not jst men but women too(for me, no offence to all koreans...I dnt have any intentions to insult them )
Japanese(again,for me) are really easy to spot...
For Taiwanese/Chinese...sadly no...I dnt knw how to tell the difference Unless the taiwanese person say something that I understood..Well then thats completely different......

I can tell by the name or accent. But I can't tell by looking at them - all Asians look the same to me.

yes i can, because even tho we are all azn u can tell still because of their features, but its harder to now, cuz the fashion is so similar, example, some hk girls are dressing like Jgirls. so its kinda hard, but usually i can, if i cant i try to listen for their voice.

Actually it's not unusual for most people to be unable to tell asians apart. In fact, some asians also can't tell the difference too. I'm a singaporean chinese but have been mistaken as a japanese even by japanese people...


But definitely you are Asian....


Of course I am. That's why I can tell the difference fairly well. But I still do make mistakes sometimes...
