    If you spell "different" correctly, it is fine.

    Re: sentence structure

    ...Or, more precisely, 'from that of French and Spanish'.

    Re: sentence structure

    I would omit "The" at the beginning, spell "different" correctly and use "in" both times.

    Sentence structure in English is fundamentally different from that in French or Spanish.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
