Avoid translating when you are speaking to a native English speaker. When you translate English into your native language you're creating barriers for yourself. You are also focusing on a single word and missing all the other words that are being spoken. You are also taking your focus away from what the person is saying, how they're saying it and their body language.
By focusing on a single word, and trying to translate it in your mind, you miss out on much of what is being communicated. Avoiding the trap of translating is a very difficult one. If you learn to focus on what the native English speaker is saying and focus less on translating what they're saying, you will end up understanding more of the conversation.
