Learning languages

Hello! Is it possible to study more than 1 language? I am interested in at least 3 at the moment. Polish/Ukrainian are my family's language (I understand but am a rusty speaker) and German is my deceased husband's background, which my son is learning and I'd like to converse with him. Many thanks for any answers.

Yes, you can take multiple languages at once!

Yes it is, but it is not easy. In order to learn multiple languages at a time you have to reach a stage where your brain is able to separate them. For example I started studying Japanese last year and only now am I comfortable to not replace certain words or phrases with the bits of Spanish I have studied in the past. So I would say go for it, but be careful it can be confusing at times.

You can learn Max. 30 languages but, there are confusing languages like Ukrainian and Russian, Polish and Czech, Spanish and Portuguese, Danish and Norwegian and Swedish. So, you can but don't confuse between them :-)

Where did you find that information for the maximum number of languages? Did you find anyone who bumped that limit?
