This may sound gross, but you're a language nerd (or already freak), when you take language materials instead of a newspaper when you go to the WC!!

...when you enjoy doing your SRS repetitions so much that you just added a Spanish and Korean deck just to be able to do some more. And you are not even studying Spanish or Korean. Yet.

...when you do hundreds of repetitions every day and find it more entertaining than any video game.

This is more my experience:

…when you use Canadian French vocabulary and expressions, when someone wants you to say something in French and you like when the other person is surprised by the fact that you use expressions that are not familiar to them.

…when you use “septante”, “huitante” and “nonante” all the time instead of “soixante-dix”, “quatre-vingt” and “quatre-vingt-dix”, although you learned standard French.

...when you are disappointed that the learning material for your (German) driver's license is not available in Japanese. (But French and Spanish, so you decide to go with that.)

When you feel a good degree of pride and excitement today.Why? Because it is Bastille Day. Are you French? No. Then why the excitement? Because you are studying with Assimil French with Ease!

When you are looking for yet another notebook to use in your language studies and find 2 old children bibles in the room and don't give them a second look, but then think, "Damn, if they were in German I'd actually read them!"

When you see someone with a tattoo with a Kanji that's missing a

mention it, like, ever.


When you actually actively correct other's incorrect Hanzi tattoos... à la
