...when you are taking 18 college credits, but firmly believe that auditing Ancient Greek (Attic), Biblical
Hebrew, Modern Hebrew, and Navajo is actually not going to add much to your load. Even if you already
have Persian representing 4 of the 18 credits you have!

When your TV is set to your college's German channel (there's a Spanish and French channel too) and you watch shows on that, that you wouldn't watch in English. In fact, you haven't watched TV in English in over a week, now that you think about it.

When you're actually considering using your German as a means to make a guy like you in your class, after he asks you to help him with his German.

When you are playing word association in a mixture of French, German and Russian with
your girlfriend at 2 in the morning and both fall asleep on the sofa in the process. And
directly we wake up at 10 in the morning we start it again.

Definitely a language nerd considering the other things that you could be doing at 2 am.

When at your local Thai restaurant you realise from the body language that your waitress doesn't actually understand ANY Thai ..... as she's Mongolian and then you can swap a few sentences in Mongolian AND write them down in your rusty Cyrillic.

I like to think it brightened her Sunday afternoon, after all languages are not just about me are they ?
