Do immigrants think in english?
I think and I do, I use English when I want to communicate something. Sometimes when I think I do use English but not always.
Why don't you ask THEM?
I don’t think at all...
I am an immigrant, and I do. English is the only language I really know well, although I do know a little French. I cannot think in it though.
No But my immigrant wife occasionally dreams in English
No, my parents speak and think in Vietnamese, even though I was born and raised in the U.S.
I can't imagine they think in anything but their native language, unless they know both English and their native language equally well. I know that when I was in Mexico and had to speak Spanish I would think in English and then do my best to translate it to Spanish. If someone said "Hola" I would think "He said Hello", I need to say hello back, the Spanish word of "Hello" is "Hola" and reply "Hola".
If they're a polyglot they do sometimes. Deaf people will think in sign language, which I think is interesting.
MOST LIKELY THINK IN THEIR NATIVE LANGUAGE
I think in Spanish sometimes, so my guess is that they probably switch. If a person is able to say something spontaneously without much forethought, then they probably think in that language at least some of the time.
Were you home schooled in a Red State?
NO they think in their native language.
The good immigrants who assimilate do think in english i think
