I was not kidding..... please enter my survey :) (But fill it with a serious head and

I took the survey, but I think there is still a lot missing from it. On the part about which languages you speak you only mentioned a couple, and many people speak languages other than those. What about those people who learned only Hungarian? Or Greek? Or Latin?

Also, there was not enough in there about self-study in my opinion, and since most of us here use that as our primary method I think you will be getting a lot of "other"s.

Thank you for your time.

Regarding the lack of options in many areas - you are right. I had to limit many
answers options do to the survey's site constraints.

I have a specific answer i am looking for by conducting the survey (I can't tell it
here, though , because it will harm the credibility of the results), and I can still
answer it within those constraints limitations.

By the way - I don't seem to manage to reach enough people to fill the form. Maybe you
have ideas about where else I can publish?

You know you are a language nerd when you wake up in the middle of the night and wonder about the subjunctive form of a particular verb.You know you will not be able to fall back to sleep until you get up, find your "Spanish Verb Book" and check the correct form. Of course, when you do get up and check it, it was what you had thought it was.

When you look around a room, and no matter what object your eyes end up resting on (even if it isn't particularly interesting, cultural or language related), you're still secretly drawn from time to time into thinking about what the word for this might be in one or more languages. @.@

when you'd rather fly on a mig 3 than on a zero on your flight simulator because you already know how to say:"hell, I'm bailing out red leader" in Japanese but not in Russian

When you return from a night shift at work and need sleep before the next shift starts ... but four hours later you are still going through French word lists whilst listenning to French radio.

When you are learning grammar and you feel guilty because you're not learning vocab, and then when you learn vocab you feel guilty because you're not practising oral on skype and when you're on skype you feel guilty because you're not learning grammar ...
