  1. Hi guys! Sorry if the title of this thread sounds confusing, but today something happened and made me feel upset. Do you guys think that name calling while practicing a language, even if done as a joke is acceptable? To me this behavior is not acceptable at all. Specially if it comes from someone who is supposed to help you learn/practice the language, when you respect someone you don't randomly utter disrespectful names like ''stupid''. That is just a big no no. This is not acceptable in any other circumstance either. This is specially bad if it's done in a language you are just learning! Not very motivating, is it? So this person (won't say who it is) thought that because I'm not fluent enough he could get away with calling me names in Dutch. No matter in what language you do it, calling someone stupid out of the blue just like that, even if it's done as a ''joke'' is so disrespectful. I'd normally think nothing of it, but this was done by someone close to me. If it had been done by a random stranger well... It'd not have affected me at all. Has something like this ever happened to you? How did you react (supposing you realized you were being insulted, of course)?
