I am going to move to Aliso Viejo and wonder if there are more Chinese (I am Chinese). There are few Chinese in Irvine, and I would like to see more Chinese there.

PLEASE READ the following paragraph!

I know there are MANY of ASIANS in Irvine, but FEW CHINESE. Please don't tell me that Irvine is the best place for finding Asians. I would like to look for, in specific, Chinese. Maybe Aliso Viejo has fewer Asians overall but more Chinese compared to Irvine?

The Chinese who live here are mostly (80%) Taiwanese, and their children (or sometimes themselves) are second generation. Many among the second generation cannot speak Mandarin, let alone Hokkien, Hakka, etc. Most Chinese here (among the youth) are ILLiterate (NOT literate) in Chinese.

So, is the situation better in Aliso Viejo?

Moderator cut: Very similar to another thread(Any Cantonese/chinese dialect speakers in Irvine? Aliso Viejo?). Locking this one.

I think AV is more diverse, and I don't notice as many Chinese there. In Irvine, all one has to do is walk through the Irvine Spectrum to notice many Asians, and listen to them talk amongst themselves and you'll hear that they are speaking Chinese. Now if you're going to split hairs and distinguish Taiwanese from mainland Chinese, that's another thing.
