well there is nothing wrong with someone who can't speak a language properly but tries anyway. the worst are those who look down on their own mother tongue with contempt and refuses to speak it even if they can.
Besides I thought Ng Eng Hen is a barbar.

MM Lee just admitted that not many people can be effectively bilingual.

way, way, too late for this realisation. how many singaporeans and their children now were/are pissed off by mandarin because of his policy. just because his son/s were effectively bilingual then, he assumed that the whole of singaporean chinese can be so too. what ignorance!
