    Yes, the odd word of French, Gaelic, Spanish, Italian or German end up in there but I try to stick to just English.

    When I'm with family it can end up a right mess but we understand each other just fine.

    Only with family, or with people who I know speak that language too... otherwise it'd be kind of weird. But sometimes when I'm speaking German I'll use a Danish word in a German accent and not realise it's a Danish word or vice versa. With English it's different - I know what's an English word and what's not :p:
