Hi

I understand that Dutch and German are both quite similar. I have got a few words mixed up (mainly from Dutch to German) but not too many. Should I continue learning both or drop one to let the other run smoother?

My native language is also English if that is necessary.

Thanks

I personally found it too confusing, so the current plan is to get Dutch to a reasonable level, then start German.

I personally would not learn them together initially, they are pretty close. Once you're pretty solid in one, you could pick up on the other one again. But that's just my opinion.

Do both but regularly strengthen both and do the activities.
