When you even consider referring to this thread as "like, totally my crack."

When you enjoy your teachers talking about current events because the only news you get is through your foreign language studies so it helps reinforce your vocabulary by reminding you of all the words you learned.


Yep! I learned about the volcano in Iceland originally from a post in Teango's language log and then reading about it in an article from a Greek newspaper.

When you set up your sister's new DSi and are disappointed that it only has three
languages available - English, French, and Spanish - unlike your own DS lite which has three
more - Italian, German, and Japanese.

When you wish yours had Turkish available - and games in Turkish to go along with it.

When your minimum wage job becomes worthwhile because you give language advice to the customers and refer
them to various resources. It's nice when they return the next week smiling, telling you confidently that they're on
their way to learn another language. Another satisfied customer! :D

I work at a gym :)

I guess I've become their personal trainer in exercising their language muscles, haha.

When you pass up a Friday night of boozin and fun adventures with the fellas to instead
watch a movie in a foreign language on your own.

...your "TOREAD" list of books has books on at least 5 different languages, some of which
you don't speak [yet].

...when your father begins to wonder why you've suddenly received seven books in the mail in the past three days, and when he finds out they're all Teach Yourself [X language] courses, he is left wondering why he wondered in the first place...

When you enable keyboard layouts for languages you don't even want to study, just to see
what it's like to type in such different scripts.

When you wish your family good night in other languages.

When you are playing a ball game in the pool with your family, and you arrange yourself so that when you miss the
ball it will land near a pair of women speaking an unidentified language so you have an excuse to go over and
listen in on them.

(I did this today. It turned out to be Mandarin)
