Bilingual Programming

For class I’m being made to code in Mathematica, but I’m most conversant in R and actively using it in parallel for a research project. The problem I’m having is every time I get told to code something, I immediately think of how to do it in R and all the “extra” features I’d build in to make things easier later by subsuming more of the work into the method.

I can’t image working in three or four or even five languages in parallel. Hopefully it doesn’t get any worse.
