Duolingo is the most popular way to learn languages in the world. Best of all, it's 100% free!

Is it possible to learn more than one language at the same time?

I'm interested in learning new languages but I'd also like to refresh my memory on languages I've previously studied, like Spanish, but I can only select one language to practice at a time. I chose Portuguese because I am participating in Capoiera, but I'd like to practice Spanish when I'm not practicing Portuguese. Does anyone know of a way to do that? Or is that not possible?

If not, that would be a cool feature to add! Maybe even use lingots to spend on being able to select a second language to learn! It is just a thought though.

Also does anyone know if duolingo has plans to add Japanese? I've studied it at school but my foundation is a bit weak...

Many thanks!!! ^_^

You can learn two languages on Duolingo at one time. Go to the flag next to your profile picture, and in the drop down menu click 'add a new course.' Then pick whatever language you want to learn.

I just started on a second language in DL. It is possible. There are others who have done it for longer who can comment with greater authority but it is not as hard I I imagined it would be.

Thank you guys for the comments!!! Yeah I checked the incubator and I didn't see Japanese, but I saw Irish which I hope they finish! I'd like to finish learning Irish Gaelic. I only know some basics. And yeah it is tedious to go back and forth, I was worried if I did that I'd lose my progress in Portuguese but I'm glad I don't!

I'm not sure it's possible to ever 'finish' learning a language, but good luck trying :)

BTW I regularly swich back and forth between the English -> Spanish and the Spanish -> French courses without difficulty

There is a Spanish -> Portuguese course avalibe if you want to practice both at once (and really want to streach you brain!)

The app has changed a bit since this thread. On iOS you should see your current language at the top with a little arrow pointing down. Tap that and you can add courses. Hopefully the Android version is at least similar.

I did it by first creating a profile then signing on through the web. You then have the opportunity to add languages which appear on the phone app.
