You have wondered what language people who speak two or more languages think in, amirite?

Though I'm not English - not even very good at it - then I've started thinking in it very often. It is quite disturbing.

Yep, that's when the person is truly fluent. If it's someone who isn't 100% fluent in both then they will think in their first language.
BTW good luck in the world cup, I'm supporting the Netherlands :)

i'm bilingual too, i'm dominantly fluent in tagalog. but for a few months, after moving out for college, my dreams were silent. no one was speaking. i guess that's my brain's way of transitioning? haha

And one time I had a dream that would keep changing languages :P

Same here.It is quite weird.But it's probably because of the huge amount of english i see/use on the internet.

I speak German and English, but the weirdest thing about it is that I think in fluent Chinese and understand it all. but I can't say anything in the language. When Chinese people talk to me, I give them weird looks. I also dream in French, but that's just me.

My friend was brought up speaking Spanish - and just started learning English. When we asked her what language she thought in, she paused, and said English.

I'm bilingual, too. I speak both Arabic ( seeing as it's my native language) and English. Your post got me thinking, and I realized that when I speak in Arabic, I think in Arabic and the same goes for English. However, I asked my maid, and she said she thinks in her native language and then translates it! It sounds like a lot of work; she's not that bad at it, but not good either.

I'm bilingual in German and English. I was adopted when I was 8 and moved to the United states so I don't use German anymore, so I try to think in German so I wont forget it. My dreams are in either. English if I'm talking to people, German if I'm alone.

I'm fluent in Arabic and English as well, and regardless of if I'm alone or not, I think mostly in English and a little bit of Arabic. I have whole dreams in either English or Arabic, it varies (again, dominant language is in English. This is probably because I live go a western country and spend most of my day speaking and writing in English), and very rarely do I dream in both.

I know Chinese, English and Melayu/Malay
I dream mostly in Malay but sometimes I dream in English, but when my asian friend is in my dream, I talk Malay but talk Chinese when I talk to my asian friend (who's a bimbo and doesn't know English OR Malay just knows Chinese), In real life, I mostly speak Malay because not many people in my class is very fluent in English, but when I talk to my Asian friend, I speak Chinese, I think mostly in Malay, sometimes in English, but I'm VERY FLUENT in my English :) :) BEAT THAT! -Asian Teenager

I think in both French and English, depending who I'm with, what language I'm talking and where I am. My dreams are in either, depending who's in the dream

I speak Spanish and English, Spanish being my first language. But after living in the U.S. for so long, after the first couple of years I started thinking in English, and according to my sleep talking, I dream in English also. My parents, however, haven't quite gotten the hand of English yet, so they tell me they think in Spanish and then translate it into English.
