          We have them too and in large “quantities” πŸ™‚ I always tell my students to let themselves be engulfed by the English sentence and not to be bothered by the meaning of it word for word. Then they can infer the right meaning of the word in context.
          What we don’t have are the homophones. I have a section of my English course dedicated to them.

            Oh yeah. When I was in India speaking Bengali, I found that the best way to get the meaning was just be holistic about it. I was never an expert in that language but made lots of friends. I find that the real dimwits among us have to “spy and scrape” (William James) and study every little bit of spoken or written material to try to figure out an intended meaning. The brighter people just get it without all that secondary activity. The former are many. The latter are few.
