…you check out the ”Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought” section of a language guide book’s page and
realize that you own almost every single book in those 10+ pages.

Add yours :)


(I don't know if this has been started already...If so, sorry!)

you giggle to yourself when you are chatting in your native tongue when someone says a word that has a completely different meaning in another language (and a funny one at that!)!

We'll have to find a support group or something.

As to the question, I figure if you've got over 500 posts on a forum devoted to language learning, you've got a problem. ;)

you save hundreds of target language web pages, articles, audio files, Gutenburg books, parallel texts, etc. with the intention of reading them "when you have more time". But you spend all your target language reading time reading new material on-line.

HAHAH I am that way too!

...when you feel the need to study more than one language. You're so passionate that when people ask what
language you want to learn you get that starry look in your eyes and you say "all the languages in the world".

....when you passionately argue with people who believe its impossible for adults to learn languages.

When you're singing in your car to foreign rap, pull up to stoplight, not paying attention to anyone else. Not caring that it's a "foreign" language to other americans. lol

-Scream random exclamations in another tongue because you feel like it.

-When you're taking notes or writing something and switch in and out of different languages.

-When you're a member of this forum :D

Hahaha--I just did that last night! Felt kinda bad because I hadn't seen the fiend in such a long time, but we ended up in a heated debate.

... when someone mispronounces a word and you ask them what language that was!
