In which language you want to express your idea isn't a matter but whether you generate the ideas in the same language is of course a matter!

In which language you want to express your idea isn't a matter but whether you generate the ideas in the same language is of course a matter! Who does so, is speaking well such language. Who fails is getting some struck and loses his fluency. Here is a no task when one speaks his mother tongue but a second language! Only the ways both contextual and remedial methodologies, one could let his brain generate ideas in second language. Listening and imitating is called contextual method. Knowing the rules and practising some test questions is called remedial method. A learner who wants to be fluent in a language have to course both.

I find your point really interesting, and I would like to pose a question to that matter. At what point of second language acquisition would you think that a student could actually think in English?
