From my opinion the main line or changing in learning any language begin from this exactly moment you start thinking on this language. Unfortunately I am still do not do it.
What they are telling you Timur, is that you will probably not "think" in English, until
you shift from studying vocabulary associated with "things" and advance into a study of "ideas".
Read,Read,Read,Read, build your vocabulary as soon as possible, listen more and more. the search for some one to practice with, discussion and chatting. Day by day, you wil see your self better and better. Eventually, you have to know practice makes perfect.
Do not be discouraged about that. It is not an easy thing to accomplish.
#1 First, it requires a shift in vocabulary from communications about physical things, which are part of your sensory experience. Those are easy to communicate.
You feel hot or cold, or you like or dislike something. These are rather easy to commnicate, and require little thought.
#2 To "think" in English, you will need to "slow-down" your processes and give consideration to Abstract Concepts.
Here is an example: Cruelty to Children
Is that Good or is that Evil?
#3 Once you begin working with basic Moral conceptions, your use of ideas as pure thought will improve.
#4 The one exception that does come to mind would be a situation wherein you begin the study of Mathematics, because Numbers, like Cruelty, is an Abstract Concept. Thus, "thinking" in English can be accomplished with something as basic as Mathematics.
Chaney, in my oppintion, you skills are fine! You had i nice teacher!
But how tu tune up our brain to to think in a language and morover, to grasp it from the surrounding?
I took an american english class once, and teacher taught and trained us how to think in English then speak out naturally, and it totally worked out well! I don't know how could he do it :/ Because I lack the practice, my skill hasn't been developed as it should be :( Anyway, English vocabularies are necessary in my opinion.
