when you got all excited watching the Turner Classic Movies channel because they were showing Laurel and Hardy movies from the 1930's followed by their foreign language versions, which included your target languages, French and Spanish. It seemed that in the 1930's dubbing was not perfected and was very costly. Laurel and Hardy would film their (English) movie and then would start in with the foreign language version. Since neither spoke another language, they read their lines from cue cards off screen. They actually also did German versions but only the French and Spanish ones were shown.

- when you feel a strange elation that your friend knows someone who knows (perhaps
fluent, if not highly conversational) in Japanese, Russian, Spanish, and Basque (!), and
is currently studying Hungarian

- when you feel put out that you can't recite everything you know about Basque to the
friend because said person already did so

- when your strategy for stopping yourself from thinking about some recent devastating
news is by spouting out any and all Finnish words you know off the top of your head

When you dream about Korean pronunciation, although you have never studied even the tiniest bit of Korean.

When you're around a group of your friends, you receive a phone call and answer it in Italian, and nobody even bats an eyelid.

You search for videos of footballers from your country who are playing abroad. Not in the hope of seeing them in action, but to see how they are coping with the language.

When you think about all the reasons to travel to a certain country and one of the main ones is that English (or your native language) is not an official language there.

Haha golden! I was always curious whenever an ex-All Black moved to play rugby in France, whether they learnt French or not. Many do try!
