In which language do you usually think?

I think in italian, but often I catch myself thinking in english, polish, spanish, croatian...all depends if that day I read in a language or listened to radio...of course, that works only if I'm about intermediate level. In languages where I'm totally beginner, like vietnamise, welsh and icelandic, I'm not able to make complex thoughts. However, sometimes try writing simple sentences, for example what I did during the day. Very basic ones. That helps me a lot to acquire fluency.

Does it happends to you too?

I always think in the language I used the last. Depending on the situation I switch back after a few minutes or so. I think it is pretty normal. Some people see it as special. I cannot really understand it. I think in different languages all day when I am speaking different tongues.

Yes it does happen. Though, i'm not sure I <em>think in</em> a language, even in a native one:) Just when i'm planning to tell something somebody... sometimes to myself)
