    But bilinguals know 2 languages and some are born and raised in the UK.

    I know, I am bilingual too but we dont use our mother tongue to comunicate do we? Thats really only at home or sometimes we mix english with it
    We speak english with everyone public where we spend most of our time so most think in the english language
    Me and many others only know a basic level of our mothers language so It would be difficult to think in it too
    It really depends on what language you are more fond of and how much you use it/are used to it

    But you can still think in your mother tongue, right?

    What age did you learn English and Polish? Can you think in any other languages?
