So please stop if you do so and tell everyone you know who does this to stop.

    haha! Idk .. Its just my preference not to walk around repeating random words in other languages .. I speak English only but I am actually trying to learn spanish (whole family does but me lol) and while I know most of the commonly spoken words (way too many of which are curses haha) I would not try to speak them in public untill I've actually learned enough to carry a conversation.

    but on the other hand I have this theory that no matter what jibberish your speaking if you add the right facial expressions and hand movements people will eventually understand you ...
    now who's ready to try this? *snickers*

    Well some people say Random japanese words just for the heck of it. like the commonly known word "Baka" it means idiot but people say it randomly. honeslty it gets annoying when they try to insert a accent and just sound stupid

    hehheh... when i ever use japanese words at school i get 'ENGLISH!' shouted at me by my friends..., but i think its good to use words in another language (as long as u know what your doing, and dont say anything to frequently) besides that is how you learn another language, and i think it is realy kool when you can have a conversation with someone in another language, cos i greet a girl in the anime club at school with japanese and we often have a full conversation (in japanese) and my friends expressions are... "how do you do that?"

    No, you learn when you converse with someone else who can help you, not if you do it in front of people who insist you speak in English. Because if you're saying it all wrong, they won't be able to correct you. Rather than sound ridiculous in front of your friends, go and find someone who speaks the language and practice with them.

    Actually you learn by using it as often as possible. Even if you speak it to someone who can't correct your pronunciation it's teaching your mind to think in it which helps you learn.

    i think its entertaining to mix other languages together and if your an anime fan then why not be that dedicated and adopt it into your regular vocabulary...Like the scenereo involving the toy store that was brought up. id totally mix words up for heck of it if i was there "Oh my kami thats so kawaii! Ive never seen anything so Moekko before sugui desuuuuuuu!!!!"
    its just fun to see =) and do >~> its like what they do with english. they blend english with there vocab like we do to there language D= thus creating "Engrish" and such
