This may not seem much to us but it is in fact something good. Most people I suppose are only familiar with one language, or two at most.
And I would say that the one good thing that came out from the British colonisation of our country is the wide usage of the English language, of what I see is one of the most coveted language to acquire for Asians in particular.
Just check out this story I read a few days ago where parents of South Korean children would vie for the 30 limited spots available to learn English from American soldiers and United Nations officials in a school located in "scariest place on earth", in the Korean peninsula's Demilitarized Zone.
I also happened upon this YouTube video which I find quite entertaining.
