Or when your local bookshop has only ever carried terrible language materials and you

Russian, Chinese] ... And that they wont let you check out the only one youre interested in [Chinese]

All of us have our favorite study materials. You know, the ones you use and think are great. And, we also have very strong opinions about those we feel are useless, designed to separate people from their money with wild promises that the product cannot deliver. You know you are a language nerd when you feel physically ill and literally cringe when someone tells you they are going to order said product because their child wants to learn a particular language and they have heard how great said product is.

I cringe when someone displays belief that you cannot learn a language without going to a
language school or to the country.
