  3. You speak Mandarin? That's amazing! I had one lesson once and I couldn't get my head around the four different tone things - blew my mind.
    I speak a little Korean but that seems much simpler - all their symbols are phonetic which makes it possible to pronounce things and there's none of the tonal variations of Mandarin.
    I gotta say super congratulations for being able to speak any Mandarin as it seemed impossible for me to comprehend anyone who hadnt been brought up with it learning it!

    1. I do! But only because I have to, it's definitely not a language I would have picked if I had the option, I'd probably have gone for Japanese! :)
