That's an answer from teachers which I don't like to hear... I believe that comparing helps understand and remember.

It depends. Comparing does not always work for everyone. The negative effect is that you may be stuck within the framework of English language (worse if it happens to be your mother tongue too) while some Vietnamese sentences cannot be fully translated to English without understanding cultural and social context.
