When the brain listens to something, the brain tries interpreting it in the two linguistic expressions it has stored in the mind. Similarly, when the brain feels something, the brain sees something the multiple languages come into play in recording that expression. Moreover, besides that when a person learns a second language, the brain has to work hard in order to store and process all that information.
