    English has taken over my first language, Japanese.

    But the problem is, I lack English vocab time to time, but I forgot that vocab in Japanese. So I'm often like "How do I say that...." and can't think of that in neither

    Mainly English, but occasionally French if I'm surrounded by French people and speaking in French (I'm bilingual)

    English is my stronger language, but my French is pretty good, I would say I'm virtually fluent (my parents are both native French speakers but they are fluent in English and I grew up in England).

    English since only my parents speak Japanese around me here in France, and when speaking French, I also think in English because I'm not quite fluent in French yet.

    But when I go back to Japan for holidays, after a week of watching TV my brain swithes to Japanese.

    My mother tongue is English - I can speak it (ish), I did a GCSE in French but I wouldn't be able to hold a conversation in it.
