    2) The true nature of english language having understood, I don't have this problem anymore.
    3) The true nature of english language having been understood, I don't have this problem anymore.
    4) The true nature of english language having been understood by me, I don't have this problem anymore.
    5) The true nature of english language being understood by me, I don't have this problem anymore.
    6) Understanding the true nature of english language, I don't have this problem anymore.
