1. Mandarin does not give a damn about tenses.



There are none!

2. The alphabet is totally phonetic



Its called Pinyin ƴ and it makes the ABCs look pretty lame.

3. It doesnt have that many combinations of sounds.


As opposed to thousands in English.

4. Mandarin aint got no time for too many syllables.



The majority of words only have one or two syllables.

5. You can usually understand people even if you cant make out the tones.



Tones = inflections. You can still figure out what people are saying through context.

6. You could even just learn spoken Chinese with Pinyin and be illiterate.



If you want a quicker route...

7. Dont like articles? GREAT! Mandarin doesnt either.



There are none.

8. Nouns dont have plurals.




Nouns do have units that you have to remember, but kiss those -ess goodbye.

9. OR genders.



There are gendered pronouns (like he/she), but thats about it. China thinks that pineapple should have a choice whether its male or female.

10. All sentence patterns are fixed.



Subject + time + location + verb + object all day every day.

11. Vocaburaly makes more sense.



12. Mandarin and Cantonese characters are written the same.



Killing two birds with one stone AMIRITE?

13. Numbers are used wayyyy more effectively and efficiently.


Months, for example, are just number + word for month. So January is 1 month, February is 2 month, etc.

14. You dont necessarily have to worry about dealing with different dialects.



Though people will talk smack behind your back if you dont speak Cantonese in Hong Kong or Hakka in a Hakka neighborhood, almost everyone understands Mandarin.

15. Some words actually look like the thing they describe.



Its kind of like reading a picture book. Ish. Which is always cool.
