    Do you prefer talking using your second language?

    English is my second language and ever since I was young I was really into learning more and more English outside of school. years ago I definitely wouldn't have been able to start threads speaking my mind like I do now, I'm not that good yet but I learned and improved a lot I feel more confident and way more expressible and fluent expressing my thoughts using it than my native language, it's been like that for the past 13 years I guess. note that I still speak mostly my native language.

    Do you relate to this? the problem here is that because I prefer speaking my second language on daily bases I constantly get mocked and called out for it as people around me think it's pretty rude and cocky to speak with them this way but when I try to only speak my native language I go back to being that shy girl who just doesn't have enough social skills to hold up a conversation making me feel self conscious and feeling that I've done a mistake maybe?

    I kept thinking that I am indeed very rude for trying to communicate with people using a language they're not fluent at and only today I found out why, it's as I stated before became so much a part of me that I feel lost and unable to socialize freely without, and I'm not even all that great at it really. what am I doing wrong in my life and how do I fix this I don't know. do you suggest that I should try to quit this habit so people would have more respect for me? it's just sad thinking about this.

    Edit: I forgot to say that the people I speak with understand it well but they just feel offended as they find it to be unnatural and just wrong, I wouldn't insist on speaking the language if I knew they don't understand it

    Well, yeah since English is my 2nd I mostly use that anyways, it almost feel more natural even if I have to look up some more weird words I seldom use sometimes. Sometimes I mix it with Swedish though when I speak.

    Im at a very beginner level in French. I’m not capable of expressing complex thoughts yet, but one thing I do is whenever I say something in English I’m thinking how I would say it in French and it’s helping me learn a lot!

    - - - Post Merge - - -

    I find myself more and more wanting to use French words/phrases to respond to questions in English and I worry it makes me look stuck up or arrogant.
    But honestly I’m just starting to feel more comfortable using both to express simple thoughts/actions.
    Can anybody see? Is anybody waving back at me?

    I like using the languages I know, but most of my friends know only one or two so I mostly use English and Spanish on a day-to-day basis. Sometimes I get to use French, but I only have one friend who knows it so it's not used as much. My high school friends & I use Latin sometimes still, but it's been years since we've actually learned anything about the language.

    My second language is Spanish. So if I’m around non-Spanish speakers and I want to tell my husband “hey let’s go home” and not sound rude to the host then yeah. But if I’m with a Spanish and English speaker host I am SO glad we took Japanese in college XD so I’ll tell him in Japanese. Other than that, I normally speak English.. Spanish is more of a discipline language for me, so when my husband or son are in trouble (yes my husband gets in trouble too) I yell in Spanish. They respect it more than English XD

    Please Like my post so I can notice you!
    (Plus I'm pregnant and super forgetful! So I forget where I post or where to check)

    I'm not that confident with my English.. because I find it hard to use the right words to express myself with. Plus I really struggle with pronouncing the letter R, hahaha. So I prefer using my native language!

    Mostly everyone I know has the same language combo - English & Spanish, as do I. Because of that, I speak what is commonly referred to as Spainglish.
