We all know users on our PSE come from all parts of the world and it seems obvious that if someone is using the internet he/she must be writing and understanding English properly. But in some countries the web pages are purely in regional language and therefore users from those regions (of course, their mother tongue is not English) finds it hard to communicate in English.
I remember my father once told me about his viva (oral exam in Universities). The examiner asked him a question in English, but my father up to his high school studied in a school where regional language was used for instructing, so my father said in his mother tongue
"Sir, do I have to tell you the answer in English?"
To this the examiner replied:
"Language doesn't matter to me, I want to know whether you know the concept or not. You can answer in our language also"
I know the above thing applies only when all the communicators understand the same language.
So, basically I want to ask what can a user do to get the best of this Great Community while he/she is learning English, no doubt in that and I know that's the most important things, but what else one can do.
Any suggestions will be highly appreciated.
