Abstract: This paper is about a problem with the dissemination of scientific information. As it is well known, most of science is written in English nowadays. However, large portions of population in the planet do not understand that language, and, accordingly, it is hard for many people to access to relevant scientific results at present. Given this situation, there are two alternatives. On the one hand, we can try to make people improve their English levels. On the other hand, we can foster linguistic inter-understanding techniques amongst general population around the world. I basically explore here this last possibility, and I do that based on a case study that seems to confirm previous ideas about inter-understanding.
