What language does your mind speak when you think?

For those people who can speak more than 1 language, in what language does the little voice in your head speak? Is it in English? Your native language? You know what I mean?

For me sometimes in English , most of the time it's in my native language. Sometimes mix. You?

What language does your mind speak when you think?

  • It's weird, but it depends on what I'm doing or who I'm talking to. Most of the times I think in my native language and sometimes in English , but If I'm talking with someone from Brazil or someone who talks English , I'll think in their language.

  • I don't really speak anything other than English so...
    I took a Spanish class but it was online and I was on my own and it was just for the credits so I didn't get much out of it.

  • Italian (my native language), unless I'm speaking to someone in English . I know some Spanish, but I never speak to anyone in that language. It's weird how sometimes I'm so used to speaking English that I will think of an English word and forget how you say it in Italian.

  • Although my native language is Arabic, but I find myself thinking in English most of the times, I don't know why, maybe because I spend most of the times here while listening to songs in English .
