When seeing your target language on a package makes you more interested in what's inside.

You mean like those packages that say "amazon.de, amazon.fr, amazon.it"? I feel more polyglot every time the postman rings my doorbell!

Go check the Volksuniversiteit in den Haag, they have most of the languages you want
except for Icelandic. I did Russian there once upon a time :)

When you are in South Korea for a layover and you buy a Korean book for learning basic Thai though you know neither. (Both are on my list of languages to learn someday though!)

When you go to the opera to see Carmen, love the music, dislike the accent of the singers
during the short spoken parts, dislike the subtitles being only in Czech and English (am
I the only one who doesn't understand the opera lyrics no matter the language?) and catch
yourself translating some bits into Spanish because "logically", the opera should be in
Spanish :-)
