When, although YouTube is on silent, you can tell after watching a woman's lips move for 10 seconds that
she speaks English with a British accent.

When the "in use" section of your desk currently includes a Greek textbook, a Polish novel, two collections of
Spanish short stories, TY Beginner's Arabic Script, and the complete works of Horace (in Latin, of course).
And then there are the piles of flashcards.

When you photograph and buy a drożdżówka trójsmak in Katowice because you like the word. OK, I also liked the three tastes when I finally ate it in the train to Ostrava...

When you look like your attempting an impression of a mad conductor but you’re actually
trying to practise your Mandarin tones (the arm waving really does seem to help btw).

When you're driving to your boss's house, you're listening to Pimsleur Norwegian with the GPS speech set to German while you're trying to remember how to sing Hotel California in Italian.

Yesterday I was making a call for the owner of the company. They asked what my relation
to him was and I blanked out and could only think "Angestellter" (the conversation was in
English, of course), and ended up having to dumb down my English to say "I work for him"
just to answer quickly.

What makes me a language nerd about this is I was happy afterward, seeing this as a sign
of progress.

When someone asks you about the "fabrics" in your home town, and you just know that they meant to say "factories".

When you complete Hawaiian translation worksheets in your sleep...and I donʻt mean that figuratively!

Now if I can only train myself to write down the answers and put them under my pillow the next morning...
