When you enter the name of someone called "White" into your phone and then you look down and realise you have inadvertently typed "Wang"

When you're driving down a street out of town, and you see a lot of political signs. Then
you notice that a person called 'Iversen' is running for Congress, and you get
excited...before realizing that it can't be our Iversen because our Iversen lives in
Denmark.

When you're alone in the SPA zone (swimming pool/jacuzzi) and you decide to practice tongue twisters so that these minutes counted for the 6WC.

You're seriously concidering buying a new smartphone only out of the criteria that it
supports arabic.

I just installed Anki on my HTC, but the text is all backwards and the letters aren't
joining like they should ! Such a shame.. I already pictured myself doing flashcards
everywhere i go ;)

I know exactly what you mean. For the time being, I'm just getting really good at deciphering and producing completely disjointed Persian...

You know you're a language nerd when you find this really badass metal song in your target language on youtube, but can't make out half of the lyrics and they're nowhere on the internet either - so you promptly message the band on Facebook asking for the lyrics, and feel like a little girl on Christmas Eve when they actually send them a day later. You then spend the entire day at university almost bouncing up and down in anticipation of finally getting home and picking apart, translating and probably memorising these lyrics.


(...I wonder if it was their lead singer who replied. He's well fit.)

When you quietly practice tongue twisters in class because you want to improve your target language score but respect the prof too much to listen to music during his classes.
