I'm trying to learn Spanish, while keeping up a mediocre level in Latin so I can pass Latin III in school (I don't actually study on my own time though), and I'm trying to keep myself from starting Mandarin for a little while longer and I'm trying to stop myself from starting German...I plan on learning German farther in the future.

I've been bitten by the wanderlust bug too (...again). I'm struggling to juggle five languages as it is, and now I want to study Dutch too!

We are really the nerdiest word nerds on the internet, but we would be even NERDIER if we knew how to declare our status in several languages. This is somewhat lazy research from Google Translate, so please correct/add to the list if you know the correct term!

I think I like Linguanerd the best! That would be a cool username.

I would say "kielinörtti." I've never seen "moukka" before and had to look it up. Kieli moukka translates to something like "language boor/peasant" xD

You might be a language nerd when you complain to yourself about how school and homework are getting in the way of your learning...language learning, that is.

You might be a language nerd if the homework that you make this complaint about is for a course in your target language. "But I already know how to use the instrumental, can't we do something more stimulating?!"
