Curious to know what language or languages you think in?

** POLL ATTACHED AS WELL **


I do apologise in advance if your language is not on the poll. A slight issue when we have over 4000 languages in the world and the poll only accommodates 16 entries. Hopefully i've covered all my bases and your option is there.

English, Spanish, Afrikaans mixture.
So how does that work? What determines which one you think in at a particular moment in time?

I tend to think in English for most of the time, but as soon as I hear any Spanish my mind starts to wonder into Spanish and it tends to stick like that. The same applies to a lesser extent to Afrikaans.

Surely if you were born and grew up in the UK and went to an english medium school, your English would be much stronger than your Spanish you picked up from home?

Unless you went back to Spain/Mexico/South America and schooled there a bit?

Actually, no. I'm perfectly bilingual. I obviously picked up english in school, but at home I am only allowed to speak in spanish to my parents which forced my siblings and I to master both languages. I have never been schooled in Spain although we do go back regularly to visit family.

I don't think anyone is perfectly bilingual, there is always one language dominant over the other. So why do you think in spanish over english?

I would disagree, there are many people who are perfectly bilingual, or at least the different between the 2 is so small that for all intents and purposes it's negligible.

I guess because spanish was the first one I was taught. Even though I've always lived in the UK, up until the age of 4 I could only speak spanish, I did not understand a word of english. At first it was awks because I started nursery and couldn't communicate with any children, but young brains pick up language quickly so it wasn't long before I started to become fluent in english too.

No some people are. People who have been introduced to two languages from a very early age can be perfectly bilingual.
