Hi.

I have a confession - I'm from England, and English is the only language I am completely fluent in. But I'm half Iranian so I have a mild excuse here :P Id just be really interested to meet some people whose first language is not English. Please say hello/salut/ciao/namaste/helo/guten tag/hola/however you say hello in your language. Would love to meet you.

Dusk

Hallo,

I am German and also US-American (also citizen of both^^). German is my mother language (literally :P) but to be honest I like English more^^

Edit: Technically speaking both languages are my first language as I was raised with both :lol:

I'm like that too with Spanish and English :lol: Spanish is my first language and I didn't actually learn decent English until I was like 9 or 10 (I was kinda late) but once I did it stuck and I speak a very mixed sort of Spanish XD

Similary^^ Nowadays I almost completely switched to English. My computer I am using has an English OS. My phone is set to English. My laptop has a US-keyboard. I even think in English all the time :P

The only time I use German is when interacting with other people^^

Yeah, that's exactly what I'm like XD Everything's set to English and I made a decision to actually switch my thoughts to English years ago. Originally it was so I could become more familiar with the language and really, really learn it but I do like it more than Spanish so I never went back; I even dream in English most of the time :lol:

Curiously enough, I talk (and write if I'm chatting with friends from real life) a lot of Spanglish but I'm not very good at speaking in full English :blush:

I didn't made the decision consciously. Things like playing video games in English was way more fun somehow and then it slowly began to extend to other things. I don't often dream with speech...it is kinda strange people are speaking but often it is no spoken in a language it is more like I know what they are talking and I feel like it isn't really in any language XD I don't even know if I know what I mean

I remember I stopped watching stuff in Spanish and decided to switch to English and read more books in English, think in English, etc. I hope to do something similar with German after I've learned the basics someday because it's a really awesome language and I'd love to learn it :D So far though, I just know pronouns, a tiny bit about conjugation that I've almost forgotten, numbers (which I've also almost forgotten, at least the big ones), and a few random words XD

Bueno gracias. Jajaja! Tengo Spanglish amigos. :) .... I have a Welsh friend who is bilingual with English and speaks a very mixed version of Welsh, bless him!
