Mensagem:  Hello Miguel!

You can ask me any question you want. I will be very happy in answer it. I am glad to have you here on this forum for the same reason; we can share our experiences as new immigrants.

Back to your question, I’d say that most of the times, I can think in English when I am in a social group.
My dreams sometimes are in Portuguese mixed with English. Sometimes it is only in Portuguese.

My self-talk is also mixed, but I have already noticed that when I think about a new knowledge or experience that I had here in the US, my thought is in English.

For now, what makes me think in Portuguese is when I don’t know some specific idiomatic expression and I try to “create” one based on the expression in Portuguese.

What about you?

Jonas
