Would be quite a disaster if you start from the very basics of both languages at the same time, as you can mix up the genders or grammar. Personally I think it's best to learn one after another even though I am learning them simultaneously because my German is already intermediate level. Nonetheless I still find it challenging to switch between English, German and Spanish as you need to translate them into English.

I'm starting from the very basics in both and have not encountered any disasters yet. If I waited until I "learned" one before starting the next, I'd be waiting a very, very, very long time. Languages are like hors d'oeuvres: fun to nibble on here and there. Can't wait for more languages to be added so I can sample those too!
