    Probably English, but that's an individual thing.  I speak four languages and randomly think in all four of them.  I don't know how that works.

    about? we have no way of knowing.

    What language will you "think in"? Any that you know, and maybe in between too. You can have thoughts that you don't have words for

    If you continue to speak your native language in addition to English, you should be able to retain your thought patterns in your  original language.
