    each language has its own personality as such so depending on the context, I will think something to myself in that language. it's most often a phrase and then the rest is pretty visual anyway

    What age did you learn English and Polish? Can you think in any other languages?
    I only know English and Polish. I started learning both at the same time at around the age of 4 - Polish from home use, family, TV etc. and English from school, TV, reading and so forth.

    Why do you need all this info btw?

    So can you give me an example of how you would think in your mind? Can you think in any other languages?
