Best Answer

Asia is a continent with many different cultures and languages. Some of the languages spoken in Asia include Russian, Arabic, Mandarin and Cantonese (Cantonese is a dialect used mainly in Hong Kong and Guangdong. It is not an official Chinese language), Hindi, Turkish, Korean, and Thai to name just a few. There are hundreds of regional dialects spoken throughout Asia.

There is no one language to be the main language but there are several major (main) languages in asia.

However if you have a plan to travel through all part of asia, these languages are important to master (because of its majority): <not sorted by its importance>

- Chinese Mandarin

- Japanese

- Korean

- Indonesian and/or Malay

- Thai

- Hindi

- Arabic

- Hebrew

- Turkish

While if sorted by Regions in Asia, the major (main) languages in each regions are:

- East Asia: Chinese Mandarin

- South Asia: Hindi

- West Asia: Arabic

- Southeast Asia: Indonesian (and Malay)

Nevertheless, languages that are considered to be the "main" across Asia are:

-Chinese Mandarin

-Japanese

-Arabic

-Malay & Indonesian (since they are mutually intelligible)

-Hindi

Asia is a huge continent divided into many different countries. They don't have a main, or unifying, language. Chinese is their most popular one though.
