When you spend the first part of the day with Welsh, later go and see a Spanish film
("Gloria", Chilean, disappointing apart from the music at the end) with your wife, then
fit in some more Welsh before bedtime.

When you are disappointed when your local "art house" cinema is only showing English
language films.


When you write to the Channel Editor of BBC4 asking to know why "Y Gwyll"/"Hinterland",
will only be shown in English, and not Welsh (although BBC4 regularly shows drama
series in Swedish, Danish, French and Italian, and we've also had some (not enough)
Norwegian output on BBC from time to time. And the occasional (not often enough)
Spanish and German film).

When the memory stick you carry around for listening has 3 different languages but none are your mother tongue.

When you can't remember the last time you put something in your mother tongue on your
memory stick.

when you start explaining something about your target language and you use "we" to say
stuff like "we use .. more easily", etc.

... and you have to say it a few times before realizing it.

... and although you realized it, you still go on using it!
