I tend to go for a 3rd option. Put the textbook back on the shelf and
find one written in English.

Hence alot of what I learned about Theory of Computation comes from
Daniel Cohens - Introduction to Computer Theory instead of the
prescribed Sipser.

If I can't find material presented in English I drop the subject. Life
is too short and often the material is difficult enough as it is.
