It's quite confusing being bilingual (or having minor ability) and listening to audio where there's background music in one of the languages you know and the actual speaking is in another. It's not quite like having two people speak the same language in each of your ears but it's quite strange nonetheless.

Pro tip: don't use music with lyrics as a background track while talking, even if it's in an "uncommon" language.


@skunksarebetter Some of my friends use foreign words as they speak and I always have a hard time to use the language that the conversation is actually set.
