This morning I woke up with a question.
Do you guys also have dreams in your newly acquired languages? In which language do you process thoughts?
It is not very common for me to dream in my native tongue, Spanish. But when I do, the characters in it are people in my life who ONLY speak Spanish.
I can recall the first night I had a dream in English. I am ESL, so it was a big deal for me. Truly it was an epiphany to my fluency in the language.
During my waking hours, I process a lot of my internal thoughts 'in Spanish'. Obviously no one can hear it, but all my language outputs are in English.
Right now, I am really honing in to learning Italian. I am waiting for my first dream in that language!
Does this manifestation occur to you fellow bilinguals?
What about those of you that are multilingual?
Do you dream in all of your languages?
What language do you think in?
