    Please clarify this sentence

    Hi teacher,
    In the sentence, " Her having understood the true nature of the English language, I don't have this problem anymore", I meant by "her" a person other than me. Offcourse, I am a male. I want this sentence in either "absolute phrase" or " participle phrase." The teacher told me it is convoluted to say " The true nature of the English language having been understood by her, I don't have this problem anymore." I am looking to express this meaning either in absolute or participle phrase. There are other possible ways to express the same meanings, but i want it in one of these ways. I hope, you will help
    Regards,
    zaffar

    How are the two ideas (See [1] and [2] below) connected in thought?

    [1] Her having understood . . . .
    [2] I don't have this problem anymore.

    I don't get it.
