How can you deal with so many languages?
Sometimes i come across with people with over 10 languages... Congragulations!! I really wonder how you deal with sooo many words and languages....
Please enlighten me!
Similarities between the languages, patience, structured learning and a bit of discipline. Also, habit: like f.ex. musical instrument, once you're proficient in one, the second one is easier, the third one is easier still etc. Even if the languages aren't related, you'll find similarities, you understand concepts etc.
Because I think this is meant seriously and not sarcastically, I will wade into the thread with these thoughts.
Some people came here with some background in a learned language (or two or four). So learning a language can be easier if you have other background knowledge to leverage it with. For me, HS/college background in French along with being a native English speaker made learning Spanish easier. Some words are nearly identical in all three languages. Later, progressing in both French and Spanish made Italian easier. Yes, it can be hard to separate them at times, but trying trees translating from one to the other can help a lot with that differentiation (e.g., FR-SP or SP-FR for the native English speaker).
Of course, unrelated languages are more difficult. German? Tougher for me than the first two. Russian? For me, it will take YEARS to get Russian to a level anywhere near the other languages, which is admittedly high beginner/low intermediate. But I try to do a little each day and/or week to improve (including some learning in acquired languages ... currently working on the "learning French from Russian" tree in addition to working to maintain the other languages).
