New Language

I am learning French right now but in the future I would be interested to start up another language on Duolingo. Which language would you recommend? How far do you think I should get along in French before starting another language? How do I learn two languages at once without mixing the two or it just getting too hard?

Sorry for all the questions in a row :)

I'd suggest choosing a language that interests you, so your motivation is high.

If you have equal choice between a Romance one and a non-Romance one, I would favor the non-Romance one, to reduce the possible conflation with Spanish.

She's learning French, but I agree it's easier not to mix two languages up if they aren't both romance languages. Romance languages are probably easier to learn, though.

I'd say Spanish, it's moderately popular.

Also, you're on lesson number 4? I can't tell which skill through.

Edit:Fluency score is 0.2528090474934041... pretty nice. Keep going!

It all depends on you.

What language sounds the most attractive to you? You could maybe pick a language similar to French. Where you live, what are the most spoken languages?

It's your decision. :D

Depends on what you want. Remember learning another language is a ton of work so pick something you will like, it makes everything a little bit easier. One technique to prevent confusion is make notes on key differences between the languages. Another is just straight up practice. If you don't have any preferences already, I recommend the Dutch course. The Dutch team did an outstanding job with the course.

I recommend learning Spanish! It is a beautiful language that will be very valuable to you later in life. Also, lots of people are interested in Spanish, making it easier to find a tutor or study buddy. I highly doubt that you will regret taking Spanish.

Good luck with your studies! You are off to a great start!

While learning French and Spanish could be, in theory, confusing, I find that they actually each help me with the other. There are a lot of similar bits of grammar.

Try whenever you feel comfortable, and don't be afraid to back off if it's too much. Some people love it, some people don't.
