23andme just did an update that allowed me to see the results of more of my genes. The most interesting gene that I looked at was for SNP rs41310927. This gene has been studied linking it to the ability to learn tonal languages (see end of article).
Hence, if a person’s can learn a tonal language, it must come from their genes. My results below T / T are converted to A / A which means I have the lowest ability to learn a tonal language. Maybe this is why I struggle learning both Vietnamese and Mandarin? In the past, my Russian teacher in the US stated that I could not hear tones. So maybe the study is true. We will just have to wait and see.
What do you think? How about your results for this SNP?
