    I don't know actually...hmmmm, interersting. I suppose both really - some ideas are expressed better in punjabi and vice versa. Some things are easier to think of in one langauge as there are some words which don't exist in the other language. Also, it depends on my environment and my frame of mind.

    HMMMM!!! mishmash....! if i see mum in dream she speaks to me in punjabi, etc.. but my actual dreams are just pictures and ideas most of them, no words. So I don't know? I would say I'm equally proficient in both.

    Since this is a very multi-cultural forum, I just wanted to post a thread to see what languages people speak at home. Basically all you need to post is how many languages you can speak fluently.

    (Oh yeah, i don't want any jackasses making up stuff!!!!)

    basic German
