    I'm multilingual [English, French, Italian, Latin, and a bit of multiple other languages, such as German, Greek, Irish Gaelic, Esperanto, Russian, Ukrainian...the list goes on.] I have only been socialised through English- i.e. that's the only language spoken at my house.

    I tend to think only in English, however if I've been speaking French, my second best language, for a long time- say, 30 minutes plus- I start thinking in French, but it's only temporary.

    So your English is better than your Spanish? So why don't you think in English 99% of the time?
