You create comparative phonetic charts, using IPA, for the languages you speak/are learning/plan to learn in the future. (At 2 in the morning when you can't sleep.)

When you just had to sign up and comment on a music site that did a piece on a Cuban singer because they listed
one of her songs as "Veinte Anos". You teach them the importance of the diacritical tilde and that "Viente Anos"
means twenty anuses and that "Veinte Años" means twenty years.
