This is a strange fallacy.

All three countries are more or less the same, in 'advancement'. The language they speak, wouldn't somehow make one more advanced anyways.

But, if you are speaking of what languages are better for a non-european to learn, it is quite clear English is the most useful. You are in China, have you had to buy any textbooks in German or French to study your Biology or Engineering classes? Probably not, most likely every subject you studied that didn't have Chinese textbooks, used English textbooks.
