When you enjoy watching a tv series with sound in one target language and subtitles in a
different one. (Works great for me. I enjoy listening in English and get useful
colloquial vocabulary, phrases and idioms in either French or Spanish)

When you attend a Korean class because it's the only language offered at university that
you haven't studied before.

You know you're a true language nerd when you're a native English speaker playing
Battlefield 3 in Russian but you put the subtitles in Spanish, just to ensure you
understand every word... while at the same time listening to Serbian rap.

Sabes que eres un verdadero empollón para los idiomas cuando eres un hablante nativo de
inglés jugando Battlefield 3 en ruso pero pones los subtítulos en español para segurar
que entiendas cada palabra... mientas a misma vez estás escuchando a rap serbio.

You also know you're a language nerd when you want to translate every post you make in
all of your favourite languages however you realize there's not enough time in the day
for that. XD

Finally you know you're a language nerd when in your last year of U.S. secondary school
you are in on-level English but in AP (college-level) Spanish Literature as a "gringo",
and still have higher grades than many native speakers regardless of the fact that half
the time in class you're not paying attention and studying Russian.

Lol! That is so true! I don't think I even have any music on my phone, just foreign audiobooks and language courses! And I wouldn't change a thing :-p (except memory size!).

When I feel really guilty about having taken a break from learning languages for a few days and even more guilty about admitting that I actually do have a social life away from this forum.

When that nice pair of shoes you splurged on, which you knew was made in Israel, is even more appealing
because of the lovely script on the box! And Hebrew isn't even one of your languages ... yet.
