When you return from a night shift at work and need sleep before the next shift starts ... but four hours later you are still going through French word lists whilst listenning to French radio.

When you are learning grammar and you feel guilty because you're not learning vocab, and then when you learn vocab you feel guilty because you're not practising oral on skype and when you're on skype you feel guilty because you're not learning grammar ...

Hah, more like that's the Persian word for "language" and it didn't bother translating "nerd" at
all.


When, after having a Persian phase (again...), you read the post that ^this^ is a response to (which just happens to be YOUR post) and facepalm yourself for not realizing what 'zaban' meant in the first place.

When you think that a 'Persian phase' is a perfectly normal thing to have.

When you think that having multiple Persian phases is also perfectly normal.

When, in the midst of said Persian phase, you watch 'No One Knows About Persian Cats' just so that you can present to your mom a reason why you want to learn Persian so she'll buy you that Teach Yourself Modern Persian book you've been eyeing up for the past three years.

When you take the language books you're currently using on a camping trip.

You take along your Czech book too, just in case you get bored with Spanish and you're miles away from your language pile.

When you experiance withdrawl symptoms when you've been away from your language books for too long.

When 'too long' is a sleepover at your friend's house.

When you seperate your langage courses based on 'the books you're currently using' and your 'language pile'.

When you have language piles. (I know, this has been posted already)

When you use Russian grammar forĀ English (the sentance 'I know, this has been posted already' shouldn't have a comma in it...).

When you write Kanji into your Japanese course because it doesn't have any.

When you buy Breaking Into Japanese Literature when you're on lesson 3 of you 40 lesson course book.

When you buy a Japanese novel before you bought your coursebook because you're 'thinking ahead'.

When you get depressed when you read this because you know your summer holiday will, unfortunately, (sigh) not be like that.

When this thread is your main source of humour outside of your friends.

When you read this thread not only for pleasure but to get tips on being a better language nerd.

When you use new languages to "reward" yourself for working on old ones.
