Thank you for the comment! This is related to your 3rd and 4th point, but I'd also add that it's important to give people vocabulary to use in the language they're most comfortable speaking (or thinking in). Two main reasons come to mind:

  1. EA is already over-jargonized. If EA only provides materials in English, then people who want to speak about EA-adjacent issues in another language will tend to use the English terms they're familiar with, which might be incromprehensible, alienating or downright off-putting to the people they're speaking to (who are hearing about EA for the first time, for example).
  2. Having a set of concepts and terms in your primary language helps you using them naturally, confidently, creatively even. So it's not just about you internalizing the message better, it's also about being able to convey it better.
