let's see... we have carabao english and that is Philippines... sadly the number of people fluent in english in our country is declining nowadays. i haven't been to singapore though... but nowadays, to think of it, i guess it would sound racist and unbelievable that it is only our country Phils. is the only nation who has the most fluent english speakers in Asia.

Sorry guys but majority says that Philippine speak English fluently

the reason behind why we Fils are good in english because english is the main mode of instruction during Prep to Grade 3 elementary, while from Grade 4 onwards we will have our national language Fil replacing english.

Philippines, definitely.

Filipino/as speak the most fluent English however the "version" is frequently grammatically and phonetically wrong but English is understood perfectly well. English-language movies don't have to be dubbed or even subtitled when they are shown in the Philippines.

fluent, as in English speaking country or just people who speak proper english? lol because from what i know i suppose English is the first language of Singapore and only a second or third language in most asian countries. Then again there's no right or wrong answer to the question unless there is factual statistics given lol


well if that's it, maybe you're country is the most fluent in English because it's the language you are speaking.. but anyways, many Pinoys know how to speak the language fluently.. our school while i was in high school even got visited by some Korean students from Korea just to observed how our classes..

and i don't know what other countries are fluent in it.. hehe.. i haven't been able to have a tour to other places. hehe

philippines hands down... many of us have already forgotten how to write in our own ethnic language like bisaya and illongo... except for tagalog which is taught in elementary in one subject filipino... but all our other subjects we have read and write in ENGLISH.... our classroom's and hallways even have PLEASE SPEAK IN EGLISH poster ... i my self can speak and write english better than my native language.

ALTHOUGH THIS IS NOT SOMETHING TO BE PROUD OF, FOR ME THIS IS TORTURE... just like our great national hero once said "Ang hindi marunong magmahal sa sariling wika ay malangsa pa sa patay na isda"
which means "those who don't know how to love their own language are more rotten than a rotting dead fish"
