Anyone on here have two native languages? What are they? What is it like and how did it affect you when you were younger?

My grandparents spoke mostly German, but my parents spoke almost exclusively English.

So you learnt both at a very young age?

My mother used speak Irish to me all the time until I dunno what happened. Don't think it affected me whatsoever only sometimes she'd be like ooh, we have a secret language! and I'd be like go away, mom!

My family speaks Hindi exclusively. I've been learning English since I was 2. Not exactly my native language, but as good as.
