    I can think in my other language yeah, but I feel weird when I do because I'm speaking in english all day so it'd be natural for me to think in english too, it's the main language i've been raised speaking in.

    It depends. In England it was usually English and in my country of ethnic origin I usually think in that language.

    However, for the past few years I've been making a conscious effort to think in the foreign language even when I'm in England and so now most of my internal monologue isn't in English.
