If anyone's interested, the 2019 version of the EF survey has just come out.




Hong Kong is ranked 33 (down 3)

Taiwan 38 (up 10)

China 40 (up 7)

Macau  41 (up 3)


(Compared to data in PDF of 2018 report.)

Hang on, this is just based on folk who take EF tests / placement tests. Not sure what it actually says about a country as a whole. If EF ran a big marketing push in China to get people who'd never studied English before through the door, and had lots of its advanced students poached by other schools, what'd happen to China's reported English proficiency the next year?
