Absolutely nothing wrong. Just treat english like any other language. What is important is, your way of communication should be easily understandable. That is important in a communication. People have a wrong notion that one who knows english is a better person. Till that goes from the mind, people hesitate to express ides in this language if they are not so well versed with it. But that does not happen with any other language including even another foreign language like french or german languages.

Nothing wrong with it. Language is just a means of expressing our self and communicating it with others.
It shows that we are normal people and not one of those who are looking to make language a political issue.
