Fifteen years of living your life in a foreign language can change the way you think in your own native tongue, or at least that's the case for Tiffany.
This week, we chat about the unexpected side effects of speaking your second (or third) language more than you speak your first, and how it can be especially hazardous if you're a writer.
Also, we talk about how couples from different countries will naturally settle into only one language to speak together, to the point that it feels downright wrong to speak in the other one. And how all that flies out the window when a baby is thrown into the mix.
