2 Languages at the same time is Fun!

I love learning two languages on Duolingo and off site. It can be done when there's motivation, positive attitude, and some freaky obsession. It also benefits when they are totally separate in culture and grammar. If your'e learning more than one language, is there a benefit for you and your learning?

I know this is an old question, but you can just press 'Add a new course' on the drop down menu where the flag of the country's language that you are learning is.

I read about "learning more than one language at the same time" some days ago! You should check this guy's blog, he made an entry about it, it's very interesting. He gives some useful tips about it.

Actually, I prefer to learn one at time. I'm learning Italian and want to speak it fluently before I switch to a new one.

This was my favorite quote in their bio "The conclusion that I reached is that languages cannot be taught; they can only be learned. "

Hello there, I am learning five languages on Duo, six if you count Mandarin (which I can speak but not read/write). There have been many advantages from duoing this. You get to see more sides to a picture. For example, recently my father was listening to a song named "Zucchero"; if I hadn't been practicing Italian, then I would never have known that the name of the song was a translation of "sugar"! Also, I've found that some English words resemble those from other languages, which can help you remember certain meanings. It's just good to at least know the basics to multiple languages, in my opinion.

I am currently learning: • Spanish (via Duolingo) • Esperanto (via Lernu) • Lojban (via lojban.org) and am occasionally doing some German on here. All this (and using Wiktionary to learn about the myriad connections between the languages of Europe) is making it all very fun and pretty easy.
