Next to English, what is the lingua franca of Eastern Europe? Russian? German? French? Some other language?
>>
>>53386901
Russian without a doubt. Might be German in Czechia and Magyaria since they are cucked by Hans.
>>
None desu. At least Hungarians don't speak Russian at all, and German knowledge is dwindling too.
>>
>>53386901
No such thing tbqh
>>
>>53386901
Lmso, good luck with trying to communicate in Russian here

Some people speak English and then German
>>
>>53386994

You can deduce from the replies ITT, that Eastern Europe has no lingua franca
>>
>>53386901
Post soviet countries-russian. (except may be Lithuania), everyone rest-no such thing.
>>
>>53387103
lmao
>>
Okay, update question time, since I'm getting mixed responses. What is the /closest thing/ to a lingua franca in Eastern Europe besides English?
>>
>>53387103
7/10 pretty good Bohemian humour
>>
>>53387632
Eastern Europe is big and diverse

You need to narrow it down
>>
>>53387805
How about Non-ex Soviet countries? (Hungary, Czech Rep, Slovakia, Romania, Bulgaria, Poland)
>>
>>53387632

There is none.

Older people in areas of former Austria-Hungary might speak German with each other, but younger people - even those who speak German - will rather speak English to each other.

Areas to the east, it's Russian.
>>
>>53387632
protoslavic shit and gestures probably
>>
>>53387489
I'd say it's something like this in Lithuania:

40 year olds and above - great russian / poor-average english
30-40 - good russian / decent english
Below 30 - Good-great english / poor russian (unless has some russian, ukrainian, belarussian, etc in the family)

And you can find some German speaking people in Klaipeda.
>>
>>53387872
I guess mostly German

French in Romania (Romanian is a Romance language)
>>
>>53386901
Excuse me, but we are Central Europe and very Germanic
