I am learning English and I do not know if is better get the explanation or the meaning of something that I do not understand in my mother language (Spanish) or if I should get the eplanation or the meaning in English that is the language that I am learning? What do you think?

Hi! Try to get both meanings. However, English to English translation will help you to understand how a word is used in daily language with context.

If there is something in english you don't understand, have it explained to you in spanish. If it's explained in english (the language you're learning) yhe explanation could ibtroduce more words you may not understand, creating a cycle.
