- you are just a beginner and learn your way around the German amazon page just so you can buy German books and movies.

- you think about the language you are learning all day long

- your favorite band sings in the language you are learning

- you decide to brush up on your native languages and second language grammar so the grammar for your third language might be more understandable

- you never write your facebook status is your native language anymore

- you get a bit angry when people call the language you're learning ugly

- you hope that your future love will have another native language than you

- you hate that you didn't decide to learn a third language when you were in school

Sorry if some of it has been said already. I haven't read the whole thread yet :)

I wouldn't call any analysis done be my "literary" :)

@Crawling: I think about my target language all day long, and sometimes I daydream in school about random languages I never plan to learn.

When someone asks you what's funny and you say "Nothing" because you were smiling without noticing it while thinking about your target language and don't want to admit it.

When you name the language in it's native way (italiano, espaƱol) you subconciously switch and (try to) continue speaking in that language (from one word to a whole sentence - YMMV).

When you try to understand what athletes and trainers of other countries say when listening to the Olympics.

When you were content, when you first joined this forum, to be learning only one foreign language but now feel driven to tackle a second. Yes, all of you language nerds: you have motivated, inspired, even subtly encouraged me. Thank you!
