In comparison with you (the people on this thread) I'm not a language nerd at all!


Yeah! Something along those lines.

You feel like a loser because you are ONLY studying x number of languages.

When you check on every occasion bookstore's language learning section, to check if they have something new.

Or when you go back with a book on language you were not learning.

when you purposely do not bring music CD's into your car, lest you be tempted to play them instead of listen to your target language(s) CD's. And then you feel guilty that you would even be tempted to listen to music instead of practicing your language(s).


When you haven't had any English language songs on your iPod in years.

Years.

The mere thought of listening to a song in English terrifies me, because I fear that I--God forbid--might even LIKE it and choose to download and listen to it on a regular basis instead of something in my L2.

I actually have not ever heard a single one of Lady Gaga's songs for this very reason (although an acquaintance did play the beats for a few on the piano once and they sounded quite catchy.. hehe).

While I haven't stopped listening to English music entirely, I can truthfully claim that I am now more familiar with some Swedish and Finnish musicians than English ones. For example, I have heard a few Lady Gaga songs but I'm actually more interested in the newest Säkert! album.

When you've been telling your friends how excited you are for 2011 for over a month, and when they ask why you say because of your new study strategy that will be implemented. They just shake their heads in confusion and walk away.

Wait, but I thought everybody gets excited about studying...don't they?

When there's Russian clown being interviewed on TV but you're just watching it because you're mesmerised by the Russian-Dutch translator. (She's amazing!)

When your mobile broadband arrives in the post, and you spend more time looking at the flyer for discount international calls included in the box (you might may have seen the posters or ads around, e.g. wow, strewth, świetnie, अच्छा है, etc.) than reading the instruction manual.
