comment Do the Chinese have a (potentially politically incorrect) way of imitating English speakers?
@MikeChamberlain just read every word in the first tone.

comment What is the best way to learn tones?
Excellent examples. I just want to point out that "德国游人来来年长城游玩" should be "德国游人年年来长城游玩"

comment Does 从来 translate to “always”?
I hope you can look at this one: zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E7%8B%82%E4%BA%BA%E6%97%A5%E8%AE%B0 But even this book is not written in "modern Chinese".

@user238264 毛泽东 is not using "modern Chinese", he was educated in traditional private school.

comment Does 从来 translate to “always”?
@user238264 yes that's why I said "in modern Chinese". In LU XUN's novel "狂人日记" he asked:"从来如此 便对吗?". But this is not modern Chinese. So I think for the non-native speaker, it is much easier to just get the meaning which is common used.
