This group discusses the language issues of those who don't speak english as their first or native language. The group is for those who are trying to figure out a certain concept or term mentioned in tools which are hard to understand. This group does not discriminate anyone but welcomes everyone open arms to have discussion on the content of tools.
my native language is finnish and sometimes it is hard for me to grasp the essential content from the reading tools offers. at first i did the exercise in english saying 'i am having a great day' etc., but soon i realized that to make the message sink in better i need to translate those affirmations in finnish.
also, when i really wish to understand and learn the stuff published at tools, i save the text and translate the stuff which feel somehow hazy.
i did this with the first tape - i translated every sentence from the exercise. i took some time as the finnish grammar somewhat differs from english. i am glad i did this, because the tape seems to trigger my mind in a more profound way than if it was in english.
so i guess i am curious how the other non native english speakers handle these things when using tools.
