Thanks for that, Dale. Quite interesting even if a bit sensationally presented. I was most struck by the nugget that the smartest 1/4 of the chinese outnumber all north americans. That's tough to compete with! Luckily, the dumbest quarter outnumbers us also.........
More apropos to the theme of this forum, I greatly question whether china can ever be considered an "english-speaking" country. Without a body of native-speakers, I don't believe that a language can be considered to exist in that sense. More likely that north america will one day be mandarin-speaking, officially, after repeated waves of invasion.
