I'm very curious

Also what your second languages are. Like my first language is Dutch, English is just what I've learned in school and it is still hard sometimes to speak or to write proper English.

English. Second would be Hebrew. I've also taken Yiddish and French classes but can't say that I speak them.

English is my first, followed very closely by Hebrew, not so closely by Yiddish and very distantly by French.

My first language definitely was Yiddish.
But now I'd say it's English.
I speak, write and think in English. 99% of the time.
Speak some Hebrew as well Smile

First, as in as a young child, Yiddish. First, as in most fluent, English, followed by Hebrew, Yiddish and a smattering of other languages.

English. Used to be followed by Yiddish but now my Hebrew is stronger. I'm already at the point that I think certain words in Hebrew and can't retrieve them in English. But English is still how I think, read, and speak. My Yiddish is not getting enough usage so it's getting rusty.

English duh.

Bh my Hebrew improves greatly and I’m able to hold a (stilted) conversation. I definitely understand what’s going on.

English. Followed by Hebrew. I'm really bad at languages so though I'd love to learn more, I'll have to be content with being "merely" bilingual (well, I can speak enough Spanish to buy a train ticket, but that's about it).
