Not the English anyway have you heard the state of some of our accents :hahano: I think the Dutch and Scandinavians, I don't know if they are taught it from a young age or not but they all seem to be able to do it really well.
Us British on the other hand are rubbish at speaking other languages and our government is actually considering ending the mandatory teaching of languages in our Secondary (High) schools. It makes me really angry but not enough to learn another language. I have a very basic grasp of French but one of my lifetime ambitions is to learn Spanish
Among university students I would say:
Scandinavian Countries and Netherlands, followed by the german speaking Countries and Poland. Italian students are in general among the worst english speakers. I have met so many italian students who can't even master a basic conversation in english!
Yes I would say Scandinavians. Some of them almost sound like they are native English speakers. I am judging this based on all the European hockey players who come to North America to play in the NHL. English is very important for them because they always have to do interviews, etc. Most of the European players struggle but the Swedes and Finns are perfectly clear.
