Get to Know your Cheesemonger. Like, Now.
Want to learn all you can about cheese? Aside from ordering a subscription to culture, befriend your local cheesemonger. Seriously, do it. These people are positively brimming with cheesy knowledge, and can help you select a wedge, recommend storage for a particular type of cheese, and give you the lowdown on cheese science and make. What's not to love?
Don't be too intimidated to talk to your neighborhood cheesemongers. The person behind the counter is most likely friendly, and should be your new best friend. Ask them about the cheeses you like and they should be able to steer you towards others you might also enjoy.
In doing so, you'll learn new terms, discover gossip on the cheesemaking circuit, and may even find a wedge or two of "sample" cheese in your bag on your way out.
