I am Chinese, I wish I could say yes, we are born smart, the truth is that, I have to take a lot of tests, I have to learn knowledge in a not creative way.
Compare to smart, I wish I have happy teenage life.
I'm Chinese person too. We have a lot of homework to do.
"If you know how hard Chinese students study, you will think they actually not smart enough."
That, and the fact that Chinese know when to keep their mouth shut. We don't spill the beans for you, you gotta find out on your own.
If by 'smart' you mean 'good at mathematics', then yes, Chinese are smart.
