How Different Languages Are Different?

Keith Chen: Could your language affect your ability to save money?

After watching the video that's linked above I began to think more about how my native language, English, was different from the languages I was learning, Irish and Chinese.

I'm wildly fascinated by the little differences between how different languages express the same concepts. I'd love it if you could share some of the slight differences you've noticed while learning different languages!

Examples:
Cheers! 干杯!Sláinte!
Cheers: Happy
干杯: Finish the glass
Sláinte: Health

I am hungry. 我饿。Tá ocras orm.
I am hungry: (am) to be
我饿:(lacks a "to be" verb)
Tá ocras orm: (orm) on me
