When you read the warranty paper of the headphones in every language available.
When you watch movies you would never watch in your mother tongue.
When you take notes at school in IPA.
When you use foreign grammar in your native language.
When you colored a map according to the languages you’re fluent in.

When you have had to spread the collection of grammars, dictionaries, textbooks and bilingual guidebooks in your one and only piece of luggage decoratively on the floor of Tirana airport, because some members of your travel club whom you met in the airport wanted to photograph it.

...when you've invented a new script for your native language just for fun.
...when you correct native speakers of foreign languages on their grammar or spelling.
...when you download podcasts in languages you can't even understand and don't intend to
learn.
...when you have correctly guessed a foreign word you have never seen before because you
know a related language and are familiar with the historical phonetic shifts of both
languages.
...when you say "alveolar ridge" or "epiglottis", then wonder why your listener is giving
you a funny look.

Guilty: Khmer and Lao. :D


... when everyone knows the only presents you accept for birthdays are dictionaries and books in foreign languages.
... when you are with your a friend, overhear a foreigner talking on his/her mobile phone and the friend automatically looks at you to ask what language that was, and if you possibly know what that person was talking about.
