Do you use English to non-English speakers?

Recommended Posts

I sometimes, well all the time, use English with my family members. They speak Arabic but they understand everything from English. So whenever they speak in Arabic, I would respond in English. I don't mean to but it's out of habit. I guess it's a great way to practice and perfect the English language. Does anyone else do this?

I got called out by my coworkers about this because I did it out of habit. Not only about using English, but also using polite, formal version of our own native language. They want me to use my native language in the most casual form, but it's kinda hard to me since I use it at home everytime when I talk with my parents. Also, both my older and younger siblings took English department in college thus making me getting used to speak using it at home.
