    I learnt 3 from a young age - English at nursery, and Italian and Polish from my parents. I have also taken French and German to GCSE level, and because I'm naturally good at languages, and because I actually started French early in primary school, I also speak those fluently. So I'm a polyglot. My thoughts are normal, I usually only speak to myself in English. However, if I think about one of my parents, I might think in another language. I'd also think in French / German if I was recalling the memories of the lessons I had in those languages until I did my GCSE's in them in June.

    I learnt Tamil and English, and my thoughts vary between the two depending on who I'm with or what language I'm speaking in at that particular time

    I can fluently speak in 6 languages. Urdu, Arabic, Hindi, Gujarati, Punjabi, Bengali and currently learning Tamil.

    In terms of thinking I can think in 4 out of the 6.

    I've asked someone about this. They said it depends on who they're with. If they're having an English conversation surrounded by English speakers, then she will think English thoughts. If she's surrounded by Welsh speakers and they have been having conversations in Welsh, she thinks in Welsh.

    I had 2 native languages and grew up picking up a third (Farsi, Russian, Sakha), I honestly switch dependant on the situation or who I'm around may dictate how I think, if I'm with friends from my home Yakutsk, I think in Russian/Sakha, from Iran, Farsi, I usually think in Russian, yet I live in England and speak fluent English, it just depends on the individual really.

    Why do you persist in repeating the same, utterly fatuous question whilst contributing precisely ****-all yourself? Kindly parade your (clearly untreated) autism elsewhere.
