Re: When can you say you speak a language?

When you dream as said above, and when you automatically count in that language.
People only count in their native tongue or when they are really bilingual
Maybe I don't know French that well after all, because while counting is okay and in fact I have to think about what my phone number is in English, left and right still cause me problems (although it's the same in English). I was getting an eye test yesterday and the doctor was saying gauche, droite and that was already a challenge, but when he said 'tout droit' I looked right again, but really hard , a split second later I remembered that means straight ahead!!!
