obviously reading and speaking chinese doens't mean much if he's traveling around the world doing mercenary work and leaning to pick up languages for trade skills.

http://residentevil.wikia.com/Report_on_Jake_Muller

his mother is edonian and so is his nationality. edonia is like south eastern europe. his report mentions nothing mentioned about his chinese skills. the fact that he speaks perfect english is also just as weird, but his mother did immigrate to america before.

now the thing that makes me think he's half asian is because when sherry read the statue, she said she can't understand, and maybe jake can read it. if she doesn't know anything about jake's chinese skills, she could only make the guess base on jake's appearance. tbh jake does look somewhat asian to me, I have no idea how chris pick up his wesker heritage because he doesn't resemble albert as much.

Allot of people in Europe tend to speak more than one language. . .Most people I know that live over there speak anywhere from 2-4 languages, English and German is usually one of them.
I guess I should say, all of the people that ive met over there spoke at least 2-4 languages.

Jake speaking 2-4 languages is nothing special.

He could've just L E A R N E D the language without that correlating to his nationality.

TC, your logic makes no sense, that's like saying just because he plays the piano well probably makes him a descendant of Ludwig Von Beethoven.


Jake has possibly learned a lot from his mother. So she could've schooled him on Chinese lessons. It's not hard to speak a different language if you actually take dedication to learn it.

Jake learned how chinese during the six month he stayed in 'prison'.
It's stated in a file. He picked up a few words here and there and learned a few things. Since that statue had the key to opening important rooms, it's no wonder the enemies would often talk about it in his presence thus he might have learned the numbers and the word west and such.

European here (from a Southern, albeit western country). Being fluent in English is not a big deal. As mentioned above, most people speak the language to at least some degree of fluency, with the newer generations being leaps and bounds ahead of the older... since Jake's 20 and has probably travelled around the world, his lack of accent and perfect English doesn't bother me much at all.

As for the Chinese, I have no idea. It's not too common around here. Plot device, I'd say. Then again, it's possible he had time to learn the language during the six months he was detained, no?

I have to agree with ReceiverxWisdom. Jake Muller's the one who learned some languages. Sadly, he didn't have any school but a prison and a little education.
