When you can listen to a language you don't understand for hours, delighting yourself with the new sounds you hear.

Guilty. And when you start substituting this for background music when you're on the computer. This weekend I listened to Czech, on Monday and part of yesterday it was Arabic, yesterday I listened to some Georgian... Hm, today I think I'll listen to some nice Hungarian. :)

When you go to a Brazilian restaurant and speak Portuguese to the waiters, and everyone looks at you like you are speaking a foreign language (No PUN intended).


When you go into an upscale Italian restaurant and speak Italian to the waiter and he angrily tells you he is not Italian but Brazilian.

... when I use my English-Dutch Prisma dictionary to look up the words in the recent texts of our English course and my friend who is in the same English course with me asks me the question: "Haven't you got any English - German dictionary?" - I have several, but most of the people just don't understand the idea of L3 via L2 - learning!

When you had a day in which almost everything seems to have gone wrong, but as you lay in bed a smile comes to your face because you realize how much you just enjoyed the half-hour of language study you did before going to bed. And you smile even more thinking about how much pleasure you derive from your language studies even when you struggle to see progress.

When you buy an old school teach yourself Colloquial Russian book, printed in 1973, for $7 AUD and it makes your week! You also struggle to understand why no one shares your enthusiasm for it.

...when your friend wants to learn a language you don't want to learn and you still know more about that language than the friend.
