Truly using a language takes effort and experience. If you mean that with your French and Spanish you can read and mostly understand a text in Italian, I agree that it's not really using the language in the same way as you use your strong languages.

Also, whenever Frozen is brought up, forever linking to this post by a Saami guy. Enjoy but don't overlook the problematic aspects.

I admit I'm not enough of a language nerd to go near that vocab thread. I finally got the courage to take a look, saw something about semantic domains of meaning, and ran away screaming again.

When you're all cleaned up and dressed and ready to go out for the night, then you suddenly remember that you have a DuoLingo streak to keep up, so you make your friends wait while you complete a test to get the necessary points.

When receiving your birthday presents you get told the following "I have no idea if they are any good or not, they were the only ones I could find with German audio"

When youʻre translating sentences from a worksheet into Hawaiian for homework, whilst chatting in Russian to your wife whoʻs just come in from work, and listening to Eko Fresh rapping in both Turkish and German followed by Joe Dassinʻs "Salut" in the background, and you realize...this is probably not quite normal outside our Forum.

...when you're driving and see a car numberplate with the letters PSY and immediately think 'nominative plural of dog' ('pies' in Polish). You then drive the rest of the journey scanning passing numberplates for declensions.
