When you start measuring your ability in other skills with the CEF Scale. 'Yeah I play the piano, I'm about C1'.

When you were just looking for a competence classification system that isn't 1-10 and
that sounds like a perfect fit.

You know you’re a language nerd when...you have a wonderful collection of dictionaries on your desk, ranked by size and colour.

Haha, that's reminded me ...

You know you're a language nerd when you've gone through a 40+ DVD collection and seperated the five that have subtitles available in your target languages into a different pile, to be prioritised ahead of the rest.

(This includes Spider Man 2 and one of the Harry Potter films. What joys!)

When your big ol' hamper of language learning goodies eventually arrives in the post, and you're tearing at the cardboard and wrapping like it's Christmas morning all over again! :D

When I visited YouTube this morning, I saw that the site can now be viewed in five more languages, one of which is Finnish. This news has made my day, even if I'm not quite ready to switch my language preference to Finnish just yet.
