PH: World's best country in business English

English is a universal language and no country owns it alone. In fact the people who we label as "native speakers" (meaning those who were born and use English as their mother tongue) cannot say they have perfect English. Remember the old adage "No one is perfect?" In one international conference I attended, the speaker from Australia made couple of mistakes while speaking. I didn't notice it actually but she was the one who apologized saying "Sorry, even us native speakers aren't perfect at all."

My point here to cut the long story short is people will now have to think twice before mocking Pinoys' use of the English language. Why is that? Check out the linky below.

Yah, but it makes you wonder what exactly they were testing right? Call Center English where they practice night and day saying the same things?

"Over 400,000 Filipinos are now employed in call centers, roughly 50,000 more than in India."
