What's the status of Esperanto in the Orient? Is it at all popular? How many Esperanto speakers are there in Asia? How many in the Far East?

    I dont have a full answer, but here's how its like in japan: JEI reports it have 1150~ members in jan 2017, which is on a down trend. The main problem I personally think is we lack tools like duolingo that allows us to learn easily online, and in general people just dont know about it. – Zuoanqh Apr 30 '18 at 10:12

    What do you mean by status? By the way, if you want to ask people directly, there are a lot of Japanese Esperantists on Twitter, and a lot of Iranian Esperantists on Telegram. – Vanege May 1 '18 at 9:23

    China Radio International still broadcasts in Esperanto: esperanto.cri.cn That would probably be a good location to find out... – Karlomanio May 1 '18 at 15:35
  • I asked within a chinese esperanto group, and the admin said "nobody is counting". But he has two groups on WeChat, the chinese IMS, with about 600~ish members combined. – Zuoanqh May 4 '18 at 22:32
