Learn two languages from two different languages at the same time?
This is, I'm spanish, but I set duolingo in english to learn swedish, as I thought it'd be easier as neither of those is a romance language. But at the same time, I wanted to practice my long lost french skills, and I'd like to learn them from spanish (both romance language, so kinda similar). I could change the default language, I guess, but here's the question: Couldn't I subscribe to duolingo in English and in Spanish, so I can learn Swedish from English and French from Spanish? Or just the last, learn French from Spanish even if I still have duolingo in English? Please, the roots are a big issue when it comes to languages and learning them.
I do actually learn Swedish from English and (outside of duolingo) I'm learning also Finnish. Since it's not even close either to my native slavic language or germanic one I'm learning it from both. I also occasionally do German from English ;). I think your idea seems to be quite obvious then, based at least on my own experience - it's only a bit annoying when switching between the language versions of the site, but come on, it's not such a problem after all :) Good luck with learning!
I'm learning Spanish from English, and then to practice my Spanish (and half-forgotten high school French) I'm doing French from Spanish. It's annoying to switch between them, and confusing me as my Spanish isn't brilliant yet, but it's definitely a possibility.
I'm also started Swedish for a bit of fun, to take a break... just randomly picked a language... and it's so much easier to switch between Spanish and Swedish as they're both from English.
Yes, but I'm a native English speaker :) I don't speak Portuguese or Italian at all, and my high school French is... well, I can understand French, I just don't remember it well enough to speak it without 5 minute gaps between words :)
So when I decided to learn Spanish, I kind of had to learn it from English :)
I am a native English speaker. My partner is a native Portuguese speaker. He say's that Portuguese is from latin the language of love and English roots are Germanic, the practical language. I say jolly good news for him that he found me really or he would be one starving poet.......................
It's super annoying... For now I stay with English-French, as I'm remembering what I once knew, rather than learning from 0, but in the future, it'd be nice. It can't be that hard to set up, right? And it's a shame, I can't complain on anything else right now (I'm so excited I'm finally learning swedish!!) You explained the situation better, though :)
