But as others said, it's good to know both.
As for me, I knit faster when doing continental.
I knit ridiculously faster in Continental than I do in English. I would say that I go probably 2 to 3 times faster with Continental.
But thats just me. I've seen some English knitters that throw that yarn so fast they could easily beat me in a speed contest.
