No I don't think the grass is greener on the other side. I just recognize how Singaporean I truly am after interacting with them, that this is a forum for the expats by the expats, so why can't you. They've already recognized how good our kids are with Math and Science, so why can't you do the same for their English. I just can't stand you disgracing us Singaporeans with your baseless comments and crass personal attacks, as what you're doing to me now.crocss22 wrote:A quick search of your posts reveals that you are obviously a sinkie who thinks the grass is greener on the other side. The kind that would speak in fake pseudo American accent (but still fails to sound American) and stare wistfully at any caucasian.

Who else in the world but us are more capable of speaking full Singlish?
"English language isn't the 1st language for 60% of Singaporeans" but "IDK about you but many Singaporeans speak English as their first language." So is English our first language or not?
For goodness' sake please stop making contradictory comments like these. Recognize the fact even with learning English as our 1st language we're nowhere better than the Scottish. Sure, we speak English at home, but are you certain we're speaking proper English?
idk if the singaporean accent is clearer than the scottish. Why don't you go to scotland or glasglow and then tell me? maybe after you go abroad, you will be in a better position to compare countries and accents. making cultural benefits for glorious singapore.
As mentioned, you need to differentiate accents from grammar. You are obviously trying to sound pseudo American in your video. I am not proud of my Singaporean acccent but at least I don't claim superiority over the Scottish.
