Imagine, you wanted to learn a subject/technique.
Imagine, that every book on the subject was written in "Plooha."
Imagine, that you don't speak "Plooha"
Imagine, that no instruction books were written in "Plooha".
Imagine, how would you go about learning that subject/technique.?
Imagine, that you found a teacher who understood "Plooha" and that teacher had to learn every technique in "Plooha" to instruct you in your native language?
Pretty difficult don't you think?
We have it easy…. we just go to class, read a pattern or a book. !!!!!!
Here is some of the work from these special ladies…. some of whom don't speak English…..!!!
They have to work just a little bit harder….. I'm impressed….!!!

Wonderful work! Must be a great teacher!!
I can IMAGINE that very well … same problem in Belgium where the majority of people I have in my workshops speak Dutch and don’t understand English either. I always feel reluctant in teaching other teachers techniques, not because of the language, but because of copyricht etc. But then, for those who don’t understand English and can’t take classes from well known international teachers (because there aren’t any over here) what does one do??
We are so lucky to be born in an English speaking country. There are so many books, magazines and tutors to learn from. But, I occasionaly buy some Japanese magazines, and I am very grateful that they have lots of pictures and diagrams!
