Hi, my gaming group/my friends, most of them are really sucks in English, so we can't really play some board games that is massive text conversion needed to be playable. But they do like some deep strategy games like Power Grid. Any ideas from you? what kind of games should we try then?

i don't have enough info to make a recommendation but every BGG game page lists the text dependence of games, assuming people have responded.

Just looking at my shelf, Stone Age, Ticket to Ride, and Carcassonne don't have any language-dependency, and they are all fine games.
