I feel our mother tongue is being changed into English again. People in our country try to promote English again. within another 10 years times many young people will communicate in English where ever they go and whatever they do.
Recently I went to an institute in Negombo town to get some information about a computer course. I was given a very bad service by that institute hence, I started my conversation in Sinhala. few minutes later I started to speak in English then that responsible fellow appologized me. Then I could get my job done easily.
Why it happened? Because I started in Sinhala my conversation. Therefore, I suggest you to keep in touch with Englsih and speak in English always.
But give the first place to your mother tongue. When you have to speak in English, Don't wait to speak in Englsih.
