the ability of bilingual and multilingual speakers to separate the languages they have learned is remarkable. How they do this is commonly explained through the concept of inhibition – a suppression of the non-relevant languages.

I’ve been experiencing this almost all my life since I’ve always interacted with several languages on a daily basis.

Speaking a second or even a third language can bring obvious advantages, but occasionally the words, grammar, and even accents can get mixed up.

Totally, and this is something native speakers often don’t understand and think we, multilingual people, are just being lazy because we don’t want to learn how to speak properly.
