Hi everyone! :D I would like to ask you what is the most common lingua franca, after English, in Asia. It could be Chinese or definitely not?
I've done this question because I'm thinking to move for work, as a cosmetic chemist, in China or in Japan after my MSc.
I've just started learning Chinese so I would like to figured out if it is a good idea , related to my goal, or it could be a better idea to start learning Japanese... so maybe the question could be: is it common speak in Chinese in Japan? Is it required to find a job?
Let me know! Thanks a lot <3
Maybe English, China, Melayu
