If your bilingual, What language do you Dream in?

Post by i_r_e_d » Mon Feb 20, 2006 5:22 am

I know spanish and english.... Mostly english, And all of my dreams are in english... If someone was equally fluent in two languages, would he dream in both languages?

I speak English and Latin. Majority of my dreams are in English but on a rare occasion I have had dreams where I was speaking Latin. Usually I would wake up with a headache afterwards.

I don't think my dreams have speech or language..it usually involves me falling off a cliff. Also they seem to be in black and white :(.

well I would guess in your native language.

Did you ever notice that when people speak their native tongue they suddenly talk very LOUD?

I am french but living in english speaking Canada, so I am mostly speaking, reading and working in english and in the end I think and dream more and mor in English. Even though french is still dominant.
So I guess the language you use is also important.

The most difficult language to learn is Basque, which is spoken in northwestern Spain and southwestern France. It is not related to any other language in the world. It has an extremely complicated word structure and vocabulary.

I've heard that my language is also a complicated one.

And about the first question: I usually dream in my language, but sometimes I dream in english too.
