When people whose mother tongue is not English learn English, how do they translate English sentences and lists into their own language before they can understand it? When they finish, they have to translate their own language into English and speak it out again. This greatly loses efficiency and accuracy. Do you have any other good ways? Thank you all

    When you are learning a foreign language, you gradually learn to understand more and more complex sentences in that language. I don't quite understand what you mean by 'having to translate back into English' - surely the English text you started with still exists? – Kate Bunting Aug 14 at 7:52
