Well, I just changed planes in the Guangzhou airport last week and will do so tomorrow and I only found one person in the airport that spoke English. I am in a resort area (Sanya) and just about no one speaks English, including the staff at the reception area. This surprises me for a resort area. Overall, the level of English that I have encountered is very poor, except for those that work at higher levels in the government. You are right about Hong Kong but not about the mainland. I'm not complaining. I just want to state my experience.
