When watching "Game of Thrones" inevitably leads on to visiting this

Learning Dothraki"...


When you didn't watch "Game of Thrones", but you still click on the link and start
reading

ETA: when after reading it for a while, you decide that you absolutely MUST watch "Game
of Thrones" to listen to Dothraki

I can sort of relate to this, my YouTube channel often gets messages and suggested videos from people offering to teach me English.

When visiting Hungary, you buy a pack of cigarettes even though you don't smoke, just so you can see what the health warning looks like in Hungarian.

When you use the Icelandic keyboard layout to type Spanish accent marks, because you ran out of room to
add more keyboard layouts to your computer.

When you're meant to be researching for an essay in the university library in education. But the linguistics section is just 2 rows over and has a collection of hundreds of old bibles in different languages, including many you've never heard of, and its so much more interesting...

When you came back from China 5 months ago and you still can't bear to bin the shopping receipts in your purse because its authentic Mandarin.

When you're 11 and you see the 17/18 year old school leavers signing their classmate's shirts and you're immediately fascinated by the Cantonese and Malay of the boarders from abroad and can't wait to leave school so you can have someone write in foreign languages on your shirt too!

When you wake up one morning with a fullness in your throat, perhaps tonsils are swollen, and the first thing you compain about is, not being able to do the proper "ach" sound in German, so every morning since then, the first thing you do when you wake up is see if you can "ach" right again, which by the way is getting there, but not yet there fully.

When you just had the realization when writing "swollen" that it would be like it you combined the modal verbs "wollen" and "sollen" together, it would be "swollen" hahaha.

...when you spend time on Wikipedia searching about whatever comes to your head just so
you can change the article's language to your TL and learn it.

...when you've been reading this thread for the past week and you're sad that it finally ended.

...when this is your first post.

When you list the languages of all four countries in Group B at Euro as "studying". And if English counts for Ireland, also all the languages in Group C.
