    I don't think you should use that kind of language to other people.

    I don't think you should use that kind of language to other people.

    Is this sentence okay?

    No, I would change "to" to "with".

    Sorry I left out a word. It's supposed to be:

    I don't think you should use that kind of language to talk to other people.

    Better?

    It's grammatical. You can still say "with" instead of "to." "With" implies a two-way conversation.

    It could be shorter: "I don't think you should use that kind of language." The rest should be understood.
