This one annoys me as well and "English and Spanish" seems to be the only available set for most of the phones I've checked (at least for Verizon phones). Fortunately, Spanish is one of the two languages I'm studying, but I've set pretty much all other interfaces I can to Korean since that's the language I'm focused on at the moment.

That's me right there. I would prefer people not look at my ipod and see what's in there. I also fill it with English stuff though, such as grammar, word of the day, conversation about words and languages. I was rather fond of the dictionary before. =s

When you listen to all the different versions of Disney songs n youtube and try to figure out what language you best like the song in.
When you can spend hours on Amazon reading all of the different reviews on language books and products.
When you scour the internet for all of the resources you can find on your target language.
And like others have mentioned, when you carry big piles of flashcards with you everywhere and would much rather study them than talk to those around you.

Your writing a paper in English, backing it up to your email account (with has settings in French), are having a conversation in Spanish on the phone, and your listening to the BBC in Russian in the background all at the same time...(true story doing so right now).

When no one in your class can borrow your notes because all the nouns are Kanji, the verbs are German and everything else is in a mixture of other languages.

I know I posted here before but this is so addicting.
You know you're a language nerd when...

you take two different pamphlets from the tourist booth just because they are in your target language and English, meaning you can use them as a study material.

you constantly write in Cyrillic and make little notes in your notebook in German and write bad words in Czech all over your personal school stuff.

when you spend more time doing Russian grammar exercises than doing schoolwork both during class and when you return home.

when you ask your English teacher to do a poem in a foreign language instead of English.

when you know the textbooks and the basic curriculum of all the languages offered in your school because you dream of taking all of them at one point.

When you are at the cinema watching Avatar and you clock yourself trying to work out the grammar of the Na'vi language.
