僕は、日本語で専門用語を使いにくいです。中国語から言葉は多過ぎる。

It's hard to be technical in Japanese for me. Too many words from Chinese.

Hvernig þú hugsar um vandamál er mikilvægara en vandamálið sjálft - því alltaf að hugsa jákvætt.

El proceso mental de un problema es mas importante que el problema mismo - entonces siempre piensa positivamente.

That should probably be 'oppia sen'.

Kuuntele ja harjoittele. Kuuntele taas. Nyt ymmärrät enemmän sanoja!
Listen and practice. Listen again. Now you'll understand more words!

That should probably be 'oppia sen'.
Sen pitäisi oikeastaan olla "oppia sitä". "Oppia sen" viittaa koko jutun oppimiseen, mutta oppiiko kukaan vieraan kielen kokonaan?
(It should actually be "oppia sitä". "Oppia sen" refers to learning the entire thing, but does anyone learn a foreign language completely?)

"Mutta se ei ole tehokas" tarkoittaa: "mutta se ei ole tehokas". Suomeksi tämä on tautologia, mutta kirjoitinkin tämän vain siksi, että käännöksestä tulisi järkevä.
("Mutta se ei ole tehokas" means: "but it is not powerful/effective". In Finnish this is a tautology, but I wrote this only so that the translation would make sense.)

Ei, mutta se ei tarkoita että hän ei voisi yrittää oppia kielen/kieltä kokonaan. [;)]
No, but that doesn't mean they couldn't try to learn the language completely.

Ah. Minä olin johdatettu tosiasian, että käyttaisin perfektiivin aspektin vastaavassa ilmauksessa puolalaiseksi. (?????)
Ah. I was led by the fact I would use perfective in the corresponding phrase in Polish.
Mikä siis ei toimi? : o
Oppia suomea. :P
