I'll add mine: a. French, English, Esperanto, Spanish, Dutch, depending on the situation, and with equal easiness for simple counting or calculating (I mean additions, multiplications and such). b. French or English, depending on the situation. c. I never pray in words, more in feelings (I'm spiritual but not religious). d. French and English, with lots of code-switching (interesting). Well, you can say I'm a French-English bilingual :) . Since English is the language I use to communicate with my boyfriend, that's not surprizing :) . That's what happens when you're in an international couple :) . Christophe.
