The Mandarin Chinese word for “I” is “Waa” with a falling/rising tone. Grasshopper and I had trouble remembering the tonal component, (as Americans often do).

Jon Stewart. Cute, funny, impeccably well-dressed, and the best darn mnemonic device out there for the Mandarin personal pronoun.
There should be some sort of award.
