1500 that is way tooooooo much.

You know you're a language nerd when you speak to your dog in 3+ languages day to day..
You know you're a language nerd when you to simultaneously interpret whatever TV program you're watching from English into another language without even noticing

It makes your day when you learn how to say "power-assisted steering" in your target language, even though you will probably never need to use this term in real life.

Ok, you've peaked my curiosity...how do you say "power-assisted steering" in your target language? (I'm keeping my fingers crossed your target language in this case is Russian or German...)

When I found, by accident, a video about the treatment of women in Afghanistan and it made my day! The video didn't give me any new information, but it was mostly in Pashto with English subtitles.

when you watch Miss Universe in a non-native Language just for the "ear candy", not the "eye candy" (well, maybe) Miss Venezuela and Miss Brasil are really hot. i watch Spanish tv a lot at nite, after 7 pm. lots of dialog. why do they yell so much at each other?

When around a dozen pages have fallen out of your Spanish dictionary and the spine is falling apart, since
you use it so much.

When you spend almost an hour painstakingly taping these dozen or so pages back into your Spanish
dictionary and then carefully gluing the spine.

When you are worried because your dictionary will need 24 hours to dry - what on earth will you do if you
need to look up a word, and you don't have Internet access???
