glad you want to help! It is no problem, that English is not your first
language. Most of the Gimp developer are not native English speaker.
There is an Wiki page, that may help you with getting started:
And there are some easy tasks marked in the bugzilla with the "GNOME-love"
I would suggest that you:
1. Find something that you are interested in.
2. Try to compile the latest developer version from git.
3. Talk about your planned solution (IRC or this Mailing list)
4. Code (Try to fix something small to get into the code.)
5. Add a Git-Patch to a bug in bugzilla.
