Do you hear voices speaking foreign languages?

I’m just wondering if this happens to other people? I’m hearing voices but they seem to be talking in some foreign language, nothing I recognise, words and sounds that are unfamiliar. Does this happen to anyone else?

I wonder about this too… I get deutchlander cuss words and Italian insults…but I know and have used these words and phrases… If someone burps I hear Schultz… In Germany if you burp in a bar everyone yells this and places their thumb on their forehead with their pinky up… I also hear Russian and Chinese phrases together… Sometimes I hear just gibberish that sounds like it would be foreign words… But voices are not very common for me and idk if hearing diff languages is common…we have many bi and tri linguals maybe they will answer this better…

I guess it would make sense if you know the words, or use them commonly. I’m curious about these unfamiliar ones, be interesting to know if anyone else gets this. This is a new thing for me. Maybe it is just gibberish I’m hearing, yet sometimes it sounds like it could mean something, very strange.

Yes, most of are voices are in Russian native followed by German, get French some times the ones in English all had different accents to them that changes.

Do get little bits if ither languages like Chinese and spainsh we can follow a little if thoses trying to learn Chinese so that maybe part of it.

Yes is not uncommon to get voices in all types of languages.

I learn other languages as was was traveled other picked up to help with speaking issues.

I don’t hear voices in other languages but I had, for awhile, a compulsion to speak in other languages. Looking back, I think it was just gibberish but at the time I really believed I was speaking in a foreign language. I never understood anything I was saying. It’s been a few months since that has happened.

foreign language in voices is not rare if bilingual, lived with foreigners, or frequently heard it;

I assume.

There is a type of pigeon language I hear mostly, sometimes people conversating together either agreeing or disputing something or the other, sometimes telling a story. Then there is the screaming, moaning, and laughter…pretty banal symptoms I know, but they could really suck especially when I first became ill. Mostly I am not tormented by them anymore, and they rarely occur in the daytime or if I’m busy. It’s strange that once in a while I “understand” them in some esoteric way or have some epiphany maybe I actually find comfort in. I can’t even keep up with the narration when this happens too and I really am surprised at the pitches and tones they take. I don’t know why they manage to make sense so devoid of anything I can decipher in my native English.

If I had voices that spoke Japanese, I’d end myself.

Mine are mostly in Turkish and English, both of which I speak fluently. And then there’s German. My German cannot even be considered elementary, so I have to look up the things the voices say on google translate.

Most common things I hear: zauber…zauber…schau mir…
