Many many years ago when I was learning English, perhaps at high school or at junior years of university, I tried to think in English. I would spend some time everyday thinking in English.

For example when we talk in English, we do not translate from Chinese to English. English just flows naturally out through our nervous system to the end of our lips.  / ~1 P  J) p! ]& n9 c- }6 C" W!
