Two languages at once?!

I’ve been learning Danish for the last six months, and I’ve been really enjoying it. But now I’ve found out that I’m going on a school trip to Italy. My teachers have advised that I learn as much Italian as possible, though I don’t know if I can cope with learning two languages at once, and I don’t really want to stop learning Danish! What do you suggest?

Hi! I suggest that you start learning as much Italian as you can. Maybe take a break from Danish? After your trip, you can decide if you want to continue learning Italian or just drop it. Or, you could just not learn Italian and hope for the best. Have a great trip and good luck!

I suggest you go ahead and start learning Italian, but occasionally brush up on your Danish so you don't forget anything. Once you come back from the trip, you can just go back to Danish.

It's fine to learn more than one language at a time...especially if they're in different families. You'll be good to do Danish and Italian! :)

I'm currently focused on German and French for school, and I'm doing a bit of Chinese with my friend. They're all from different families, so I haven't dealt with much confusion.
