    I'm fluent in Swedish and English, and I tend to get this question a lot. For me, it's English because I'm in England and I'm speaking English on a day-to-day basis. If I go to sweden, I'll be thinking in "Swinglish" (english & swedish mixed up) for a day or two before I start constantly thinking in Swedish.

    So both.

    I can speak three languages. English, Punjabi and Hindi

    My parents are Indian, so obviously they know Punjabi and Hindi therefore they've taught it us too. I was taught English at nursery etc obviously. I do consider English my native language though.

    English. However, sometimes it's something mixed and odd as it mixes with Bulgarian and German.

    I am not bilingual but I have caught myself thinking in French... and my brain interprets quiet conversation I hear as French a lot even though I know it'll be English.
