Bilingual learning problem

I can speak both Chinese and English so I wonder if it’s possible for me to learn French using English as my default setting language, learn Japanese using Mandarin? It’s much easier that way.

Yes sure, you can choose add new language" "I speak..." and then choose the learning language. (As long as the course exists). But any progress in the Mandarin from English will not be transferred. You'll start the new course as an additional one and from scratch, though you can do the placement test and maybe test out of some of the first skills.
