Like Spanish and you do not know the language do you think they are talking about you?
I do! My dh and mil do this and I swear it is about me! They go from English to Spanish mid conversation! Drives me nuts!

No. However, myself and family do slip and start speaking in Hindu (sometimes Punjabi or Urdu) when are are all together in groups. It's not really a conscious thing, or purposefully done it just happens the majority of the time. Times when it does happen on purpose, it's because what is being discussed is sensitive/private and the person it is about doesn't want it shared with everyone to be privy to for whatever reason.
I know that there are those who feel that this language switch is rude and done on purpose. Most of the time however, it just happens unintentionally. I have family members that switch languages when: angry, sad, upset..etc.. because they express their feelings better in their native language, not because they are trying to be rude.
