Hmm... I accidentally used a complex tense expression when I said that.

What I meant was that before we did the Kylin incubation, I worried that
English would be too big a barrier.

During incubation, the Chinese team members worked very hard to make
interaction easy and clear. I think my doubts well proved unfounded.
