English is an independent language that does not rely on Chinese to exist. Therefore, any natural born Chinese who studies English must bear in mind that they should sooner or later stop seeking translation but directly understand new words from English explanation. To build English to English mindset, the Chinese students must stop using English-Chinese dictionary and replace it with English-English dictionary. In addition, when it comes to puzzles, they should consult English grammar books written in English not in Chinese. Thus, their mental process will be continuous in English and not to be interrupted or interfered by Chinese. In otherwords, keep the confusion in English. The bottom line is: let English be English, and let Chinese be Chinese.
