    imo I naturally think in all three, but more smoothly in Swedish and English seeing as they're both equally as strong for me. Arabic tails behind because I don't read/write yet, which means my vocabulary is smaller.
    Can you mix thinking languages, so think in a hybrid of English/Swedish/Arabic?

    I think that's actually how I do think. Especially if the ''main thought'' is in Arabic, more often than not, I weave in words from both English/Swedish. If that makes any sense, haha.
