THEY speak English in China. In Guangzhou, the locals are taking an exam to win a job in the provincial goverment. Says the Information Times:

It was very unexpected, I don’t think a lot of people can write anything,” said a woman who gave her last name as Pan. She was speaking about the composition section, which required the test-taker to write a toast in English. Another candidate, a man named Huang said, “Most government offices just have no use for English skills, nor do our daily jobs have anything to do with it. I think English is just a fad, and I hope it will be cut out from the exam.”

English. Like wot she shold be spoken…
