That's a good question. I mostly dream in Dutch but sometimes I also dream in English. I once had a dream wherein I dreamed I spoke Dutch, English and French. When I woke up I realized I had actually formed the right sentences in French. I pronounce languages so much better while I'm asleep then in reality. :lol:

Well, my native language is Italian but I speak English, Spanish and Portuguese too. Since I work mainly with English I often dream in English. When I lived in Dublin I used to dream more in English than in Italian.
I recall just some dreams in Spanish and Portuguese but just a few...
Usually, though, the dream isn't in one language only...it's just Italian English, than Italian again, than English. :lol:

The odd thing is that most of the time I dream on english instead of croatian, I remember once having a dream
on spanish, now, how cool is that... 8-)

My mother tongue is actually swedish( here in Finland we have a 5% miniority who speaks swedish) but my finnish is as good as my swedish.
And then I can speak english, getting better all the time :D
And a bit german, danish and norwegian.
I would love to learn speak spanish!

Usually I dream and think in swedish or finnish( depends on where I'm and who I'm talking to...) but sometimes I notice that I think in english too :)

I think it's so cool that you speak 3 languages! I'd love to visit Finland and Sweden! It's such a beautiful country!

Well, I speak English but also Welsh although it's a little rusty sometimes!

There's a language called Irish? I thought that was just English!

That's so fun that you're from Finland. I'm from Norway. We're practically neighbours :D *Waves*

So obviously I speak Norwegian. I also speak English quite fluently, since Ive learned it in school since I was 8 and I've lived in New Zealand for a year. I did take German in school but I can't remember much of it.
