Jasna, 

 

You need a definite article -- the -- before 'non-English-speaking' (note the hyphenation).  We use 'the' because we are referring to a specific group that is known.  Similarly, we would almost always use 'the' before talking about any one population. 

For example:

 

'The population grows each year.' (We use the because everyone understands that this population is the world population)

 

'The Japanese population has shrunk over the last century.' (We know the specific population, Japanese)

 I am very sorry that you are not coming. The lack of fundind its a big trouble. I would have liked to be able to offer you a much more atractive proposal as you deserve. We would have been delighted with your presence. I could offer my house for your family. Well, for the Lectures there is a special place very beatiful for accommodation in the centre of Medrid, with air acondition and swimming pool.

We are not doing this under Metanexus patronage. The University San Pablo CEU of Madrid and the Ateneo Pontifio Regina Apostolorum, in Rome, are supporting this project with some ecomical facilities but the economical crisis has damaged everybody very much everywhere.

I remember when you came to Madrid and we went to El Escorial with Fr Jaki.I would like you could join these group of colleges and friends, wonderful people and very well prepared.

If I could find at least a free flight for you, do you think you would be able to come? I would like very much you could paticipate in this international meeting. Important decitions about a Stanley Jaki Foundation needs to be taken, and you would be a great help and support.
If there is no way you can come, I will understand perfectly well. But if you could come please let me know.
