I remember when I arrived in Ireland, on a scale from 0 to 10 my english level was 0.5 . Even though my english level was so bad and there was no Google Translate at that time, I managed to use websites that only had the english language and I was even doing online shopping. How was that possible?
Some websites were really simple, clean and intuitive. The user interfaces were user friendly and the icons were used to improve the user experience rather than just because they look cool. Basically the interfaces of these websites were so good that I was able to use them without even reading the text and just being guided by the user interface and the icons.
