    So you can think in Malayalam? Can you think in any other languages (apart from English and Malayalam)?

    Do you think in English 99% of the time? Do you have to force yourself to think in Malayalam?

    I'm bilingual in English and Brazilian Portuguese, I'm weaker in Portuguese since I was born and bred in the UK, but I think in whatever language I'm speaking in at the time. I also dream in both which is so trippy...

    Can you think in Portuguese? Can you think in English? Can you think in any other languages?

    Yeah, I can speak 5 languages in total but I only think in those other languages when I am around people who speak that language, I also can think in them anyways but 90% it's English
