I am studying English and came across "mingle" just the other day. I di not know this word.

Is it too different to "mix" ?. I cannot tell them apart, I am reading definition on online dictionaries and it is somewhat struggling.

Thanks in advance!.

    In many context they are very close synonyms. Mix might be more concrete and literal, while mingle might be better in abstract, metaphorical or literary contexts: for example it would sound rather pretentious to mingle ingredients when cooking
