    I spoke a kind of feral language till I was about six.
    Only my sister could understand me.
    (No doubt it was basically English, but that didn't help anyone understand me.)
    Not quite what you were looking for, I realize, tallbig.

    I spoke French, English and some German when I first began speaking, if that is what you are alluding to, since I am descended from Canadians! However, English is definitely my primary language!
    Now, a question for you. Do you speak another language as your primary language other than English, Tallbig ? If so, is that language Spanish ?

    My first language is Bengali.

    I have also learnt Hindi, English, German, French, Dutch, Italian and Japanese as I have grown up. I would say that I am now fluent in the first six and can manage my way in the last two.

    I enjoyed growing up multilingual - and I am sure it also gace my brain good training. I'd consider it essential to be at least bilingual in today's world. You get to enjoy the world more as you get to communicate and understand other people better.
