It was not clear to me while watching. Do the characters speak English with each other, or does each one simply speaks his/her own language and the others understand?

It is confusing also to understand since their environment speak English. Is it just to make the show easier to watch, or is it as if each character speaks his/her own language and we are able to understand it as 'our' language?

I remember there was an episode where Naomi was asked how many languages can she speak. She answered 7, so I believe she counted the mother tongues of her cluster (English, Spanish, German, Icelandic, Hindu, Swahili, Korean). But in a later episode, Riley tells Will that she can speak French, and therefore he can too; shouldn't Naomi count this language as well?

  • The last part, about the number of different languages spoken/understood by the cluster, should probably be asked separately. The first 2 paragraphs fit together as aspects of a single question, but the last one seems incidental to the question in the title. – DavidW Jul 23 '19 at 13:18

It's my understanding that when Sensates speak mind-to-mind via telepathy, there is not a specific dialect.

Scenes that support that include when Bug talks with Nomi and Lito in the movie theater (Bug speaks in Spanish to be understood by Lito), as well as when all the gang plus their significant others are in the one house in Europe, preparing for the final battle with Whispers/Lila in the season finale episodes.
