Languages in Asia


Many languages are spoken throughout Asia, comprising a number of families and some unrelated isolates. While the local languages are always best, some blanket languages can be useful in multiple countries. In the Middle East, Arabic is widely understood, while knowledge of Russian will help you in Central Asia and the Caucasus. Hindi/Urdu is useful in South Asia and Malay/Indonesian will help you in Southeast Asia. Mandarin Chinese is spoken by most in China, and understood in Taiwan, and to a lesser degree, in Singapore.
