Why do westerners think Asians can master English easily ?
Actually on a scale of 1 - 10, even the university students in Asia are around in 4 - 5 on average. And average people in developed Asian countries are around in 2 - 4. Most Asians in other countries are around in 1-3.
Those who can speak English fluently in Asia like the native English speakers study it extensively.

Some people are better at it than others. What skews your image of the situation is the fact that those who speak the best English are the most likely to speak with you. Those with poor English will avoid it

What are you talking about? Millions of Asians speak fluent English. Don't forget Britain ruled what is now Sri Lanka, India, Pakistan and Bangladesh for centuries and English became a common language. It is also very common in Singapore and Hong Kong which were both ruled by Britain. Educated Asians in countries like Israel. Turkey, Saudi Arabia etc all speak English well.
