Did you know you can restart learning from a different perspective. I speak english and some french and my language that I have learned has been spanish but you can go to add a new course and learn spanish from french or english from spanish. This helps me practice and helps me think in other languages and I can review things... Hope this helps and I hope you understand what I mean. Merci Gracias

That is a great idea!

I wonder how far a person could go with it.

Say you are native english and learn spanish.

then use your new spanish to learn french.

could you possibly, successfully, use your new french to learn yet another language?

I'm trying to figure out how far it could go with available combos.

Native language------target language

  • English------------Turkish

  • Turkish----------Russian

  • Russian---------Spanish

  • Spanish--------Portuguese

  • Portuguese---------German

  • German-----------French

  • French----------------Italian

  • Italian----------------English (gotta bring it back home!)

Who's in? I'll start Turkish now and meet you back here in 15 years....

Ready, set, go!

can't get korean, swedish, japanese.... in the mix?
