Actually that's pretty cute. I know the feeling. All these trolls with their mean comments probably don't know what it's like to read in a second language.

I agree with 32. I know six languages, some better than others, and often switching between the two can be difficult. If I'm using a lot of Japanese, for example, I've been told that I'll rattle off in Japanese to English speakers and not even know it. The brain just doesn't switch between languages as easily as some think.

@75: I dunno... I mean I speak English and Dari pretty decently, as well as some German and Arabic (and a very tiny helping of Spanish and Italian from middle school), and the worst I've ever done is mix up con and mit (with) for the respective languages (Spanish and German). Folks should know from accentual context that something is amiss if they suddenly encounter a different vocabulary. Heck, sometimes my Dari friends will switch from English to Dari and back to English on the fly and we make sure to change our accent to match.

Well I'm fluent in English, German, and French and I know that feeling exactly, sometimes i'll be doing something in German then I will begin speaking French but will have troubles because I'm thinking in German.

i don't know what all of you are talking about. ive learned a little japanese and a little spanish quite a bit of german and i always know exactly what language i am reading. i have never confused german for english or any other language. usually there are ways you can immediately tell what language it is just by glancing at it. for instance, you are not likely to find a lot of ö, ü, ä, or ß in english. so i think the OP probably just wasnt really concentrating on what he or she was reading.

54- I went to high school and currently studying a bachelors and I don't know another language. And hardly anyone I know does either. Most the high schools here only offer Indonesian as a language class and it's only by choice if you want to do it. I didn't see the point when I had other more important classes to choose from and most people in Indonesia know English anyway :-)

Haha when I came back from mission trip in Honduras, if I wasn't focused when someone was talking it'd sound like Spanish occasionally. Awkward. Haha
