Learning the same language from two base languages
I have been learning French for some time, selecting English as my base language. I recently decided to try to learn French with Italian as base language (Italian is my native language), as the two have more in common grammar-wise, and that could make things easier.
What will happen if I select Italian as my base language and start the French course from there? Will my progress in "French from English" be lost? Will I be able to switch freely back and forth between the two?
Thanks to all who answer.
