When you're tempted to learn French JUST so you can understand this in it's original language.

It's already funny, but I think it;d be funnier if I knew French.

When you change the language settings on a device out of sheer interest, and then can't work out how to quickly change it back later and use it...because it's all now in a foreign language (lol)!

When predictive text on your mobile phone becomes completely messed up and unpredictable, simply because you keep texting in a variety and mixture of languages...

You plan to take language placement tests just to see how far you can archive by studying
the target languages within one month.

...when you spend hours on Google Earth exploring the places that speak your target language, checking out the pictures and reading any signs you see.

You return to the car park to find your car is missing and your first thought is, "Oh no! My Champs Elysees CDs
were in there!" Then when the police track the car down, you are surprised, quite pleasantly, to find that they
weren't stolen.

I do this, too. My phone is always in Spanish (there is a very disappointing choice of languages on my phone, I can only get English, German, Italian, French, Spanish, Dutch, Portuguese and Turkish. That's not really very good considering that's only one of my three target languages), but my iPod has lots of language options so I basically just change it whenever I feel like it. It's in Greek at the moment, but before that it was in Korean, when I can't even read Korean script, so that made navigating it a bit awkward, but that's OK because it's easy enough to find my music and the language list, so I can switch it to a language I understand if I need to do anything more difficult than listening to music. So it's almost always in Spanish, Romanian or Greek if I want to understand what I'm looking at, or if not I'll just have it in some other language just for fun, LOL.
