OK I don't know whether I ought to post this or not but I will:
It might be easier to try to learn English enough that the Linux documentation makes sense to you. I hate saying it because I am English but I read all over that Linux is developed in English (Linus Torvalds, as I understand it, used English to complete his computer science degree because his native language was not admissible).
I think in a few years this may change and we may see a lot more Chinese languages used for software projects but we'll have to see.
Again, I really feel uncomfortable posting this as an Englishman but it does seem to be the way things are.

I agree with the post above. I'm not a native speaker of English but I learnt most of what I know about Linux and computers from English resources. There are so many resources/manuals/tutorials for Linux (and generally computing) that it makes perfect sense to learn English to access them. I don't know what's going to happen in the future but at the moment English is the language of internet and it's not going away any time soon.

Go with English as 273 stated. English is an -- perhaps even the -- international language. Learn it well and you will be able to do everything from fly a commercial airliner to write in a language understandable to people all over the world. You will gain an enormous advantage over fellow students, not to mention benefits beyond the classroom, if you master it. I am Greek and British by ancestry so I admit to bias, but I believe few will disagree with my assessment.

Fully agree to this. I am German but by default I search the web with English search terms whenever I need information on linux and/or programming... simply because typically there is more information available...
