Is foreign language really that cool?

Posted in Language by Katharine on May 13, 2011

Living in a Chinese speaking society, where people believe in “better English means better live”, is doomed to come across someone who just looooove to throw English words (or any foreign languages) around. They would try to squeeze in a lots of English words within a Chinese conversation. This is one thing I hate a lot about people here. Especially those people DON’T SAY THINGS RIGHT, and think that they’re ultimate cool and all for knowing extra foreign vocabularies. my ass.

Does it really makes you look cool when you can confuse people with foreign words? When you talk to people, it’s about COMMUNICATION and understanding the conversation. Showing off makes you look like an a-hole, while saying things wrongs makes you look like an idiot.
