Not that many Japanese speak english? Are you kidding me, something like 1 in 10 Japanese speak English, which is by the way the language of trade, when people from Japanese and Chinese businesses meet they talk in English, over 60% of the world speaks english.
And only 70% of Chinese speak and write Mandarin(sp?) the rest for the most part speak Cantonese(sp?).
Please note that 98% of what I say is my opinion and/or my "version" of the facts. Most of what I say is rumor with little to no evidence to back it up, just something I picked up somewhere.
