Tsai and Ma are more or less tied in English ability, but Tsai is more natural and less hesitant in her speech. Ma speaks too slowly for the news media to pull successful soundbites out of him, and seems to lose the political precision he accords terms such as "Taiwan" and "Republic of China" that he maintains in Mandarin. Soong isn't bad either, but sounds like he hasn't been using his English skills on a regular basis for a very long time, and has a more pronounced Chinese accent.
