If you’ve ever learned a second language, maybe you’ve had the strange experience of dreaming in the language you’re learning. When I first experienced this, I remember thinking of sign language, wondering how people dream in a silent language. Dreaming is just the start. Listen to your inner dialogue. For the most part, you think in the language you speak. Have you ever wondered what the inner thought process of deaf people must be like? Someone who has never heard words spoken aloud before? Luckily, hearing impaired people answered this question on Reddit. The responses are very interesting.
