    I'm Russian but I think in English and speak English.

    I only speak Russian when I'm with people who only understand Russian.

    I think in English, because that's the one I'm better at/use significantly more.
    I only really talk in Gujarati with family and even then we normally use English.

    I speak English and Kiswahili, but I think in English. Even when I'm at home and my mum speaks to me in Kiswahili, I'll usually answer in English. It's a force of habit.

    I speak Gujarati fluently but only ever use it when I go to Gujarati weddings or speak to the fam abroad. Sometimes guju banter with my mom, that's it really.


    I think in guju and English simultaneously but speak English a lot more.


    EDIT: sugar, not sure if this counts but I can understand Hindi and speak it (but I do struggle because I mix up both Gujarati and Hindi.. Disastrous lol)
