Finally, we have included Mandarin in the list. This language has been put here to demonstrate how different it will be for an English speaker to learn Mandarin after learning, for example, Spanish. The grammar won’t make you suffer while to speak Mandarin is a struggle since the language is tonal. Your intonation and tone completely changes the meaning of the word. If you pronounce the word ‘tang’ using a high tone, the word will mean ‘soup. If the tone is rising, the meaning changes to ‘sugar’.
