How's your Spanish? If you're doing fine with Spanish then you could give French a try. If you're still struggling with Spanish, I recommend sticking with Spanish until you get a better understanding of it.

They are very close languages, my sister studied both of them for two years at the same time. She does get confused with them both, but she can speak in them.

I don't see why not, although do prioritise your language learning. I wanted to learn all the romance languages (French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Romanian) but I'm just focusing on French for the time being.

It makes it easy to focus on your preferred language. I am studying one from Romance group (French), one from germanic group (Dutch) and an asian language (Chinese)

When I become better at these languages -say intermediate/almost advanced, I will probably move on to Portuguese, Swedish, Korean.

Nobody can be you for saying "yes" or "not... you'll never know if you don't try.

Yes definitely.Remember when you're learning a language ,or several, you're learning the rules of syntax and grammar as well, which apply across all languages in various forms.Therefore you'll be consolidating your language learning skills by adding another language. Good luck

I studied both at the same time. Spanish stuck but French didn't. Kinda weird.
