Like myself, if you speak more than one native language, which language do you usually think in?
I know it sounds weird but even though I speak English on a daily basis, I always find myself thinking in my Northern Punjabi dialect (a variant of the Standard Punjabi which I also speak) - if I don't do this I struggle with my English and end up being lost for words! I was exposed to both languages at the same time as a kid so maybe it's just my brain's way of choosing one over the other - I don't know lol
So I was thinking, is this normal or do I need help? haha
How about you guys? I would love to know your thoughts and have some input!
I spent my childhood in the States, but my family is Japanese! (So Japanese and English)
So, for things around the house or about my family, I think in Japanese, but for academic things or when I want to look things up on the internet or when I read books, I use English.
Sometimes, Japanese doesn't have an equivalent for an English word, and vice versa. So, I use whichever language fits my mood.
But I'm studying Spanish right now so I'm really making an effort to think in Spanish! haha
