Speak - English but in a Scots dialect so I don't pronounce or say most words the same way the English do.
Think - same as above.

Is there one language which is stronger? And so why don't you think in that stronger language?

Because I'm a native English speaker and it would be too much effort to think in a foreign language :p:

Nah, my English is better than my French. French is the stronger of the two foreign languages I can communicate in, so I have a more developed faculty to think in French. However I can also think in Spanish if need be.
