Do u ever feel as if u speak English better than your native language. For me this is mainly because I read loads of English books but none in my native language :/ strawpoll.com/rb8fj129y

How long does it take for this to occur for you? Hours? Weeks? Months? I know that if I don't practice for at least 2 weeks I start to lose some of my language skills.

depends honestly, for example, during Christmas holiday (from December 25th to January 4th) I was in my own world watching English twitch streamers, youtubers and playing English games so when the holiday ended and I needed to start attending zoom lessons I hopped on discord with my friends and and my sentences(wording) and words were super sloppy

It used to be the case before, when I used English much more than I do now (worked as a translator / media manager for 2 years). At the time, I had moments when I was really struggling to word something in Russian language, while the same thought phrased perfectly fine in English for me, and it really bothered me. Now I feel pretty comfy, just as it should be, I guess.

Recently, I also started to notice some things like implementing some of the English grammar structures in Russian language, which probably might sound rusty for others, but I don't care as long as I'm being understood, I think.
2021-02-12 16:13
There are some situations then you can use English word and it will fit perfectly or you just dont know the russian word, but know english meaning of it. I was thinking about going to study as a traslator, but my parents denied me( I had B2 lvl, but now my English struggle a little bit :D

Sometimes I can only think of the english version of a word and I feel like an idiot. But overall my vocabulary is more extensive in german than it is in english, and I don't see that changing.

Is that because you hadnt fully grasped the language before you started learning English and haven't really had a need to return to Romanian to finish it off?

i mostly listen to english music , watch english youtube videos / movies , when i do my homework i usually search for the information in english . also im not a very social person dont have a lot of friends and i usually talk online with people , you guessed it , in english . So i literary only talk in my own language with my parents ,during school ( half of it is in english also ) or when i do daily things like buying something
2021-03-11 17:53
Not even close. Although I think my english is decent, I can express myself in portuguese in a more eloquent manner (it was hard to find words to write this sentence).

2021-02-12 16:49
Yup, everyday. I only read English books myself and speak it daily so sometimes I will think of a word and it only comes to me in English and not in Dutch.
2021-03-05 16:56
Nah we speak as far someone can understand what we say. It’s good to know multiple languages but always your native go first and only.
2021-03-05 17:58
if you talk english better than your own language imo there is a big problem
2021-03-05 17:59
it happens if you have been using said language more than your native for some time; since i've been spending most of my time in internet where like 90% of things i do are in english, i sometimes feel the same way

I speak very good english, but there will always be words that i can say in my native language that are somewhat advanced that i cannot translate to english. But i still believe i speak english very well anyway. Sometimes it’s the other way around, i can’t translate some english words into my own language.
2021-03-06 09:37
Well, I wouldn't necessarily say that I feel like I speak it better, but I very often say English words when I speak because I forget the word in my native language. My friends always troll me when I do because it seems funny to them. Also, it’s my third language but point stays the same
