In order to convey their thoughts affectively, people code-switch at times. (2) Habit and Reflex. Some things were ingrained in our mind when we were really young. Even if they have been using another language, when it comes to certain things, such as counting, it switch back to the language they learned when they were young.

Tatyana Lerin, initially the European…
