I think you need to spread them out a bit so that you are not at the same level in all of them. Those germanic languages especially are going to get confusing. I did one at a time. I was doing German and Dutch together but it scrambled my spelling when I got to about level 8, so I left Dutch for a few months and then went back to it once I had finished German. I found doing three or four at a time manageable. Finding the time for more at once would be very difficult.

Well, it is up to you, but no. I would not study 8 languages at once. Learning one keeps you more focused on that language, rather than overwhelming yourself. It seems you are learning Dutch and German. They are very similar and learning both at once will confuse you. I would focus on one language for now. I would recommend Norwegian because it is a beautiful language and it is also quite easy to learn. Once again, it's up to you which language you choose, but only do one.

If you do not find similar languages confusing and you really want to do 8 languages at once, then go for it!

Do whatever you enjoy and works well for you. If you're planning attaining some sort of fluency in the eight languages, I'd recommend spreading them out a little bit - wait until you know quite a bit of one before starting the other. But if you're not overly fussed on reading novels or chatting with natives, and just think learning basic phrases/etc. is fun, go for it!! Just make sure that you adapt whatever you do so that it's comfortable for you. Only you know what's the most enjoyable way to get the most out of languages :)

Do whatever you find works best. Personally, I find it somewhat difficult to study such a high quantity of vocabulary and grammar at the same time, but whatever gets you optimum results is the way you should learn.

I'm doing three languages (plus a few minutes of Swedish), and that is already quite frustrating because I don't have enough time in a day to review my weak areas. My thinking is: let's say it takes two years per language, practising daily, to hold a basic conversation. I'm not sure I would want to wait 16 years. On the other hand, if you can do it, I imagine you would learn to mentally separate the languages from one another, so that's a plus. If you were to study two languages a decade apart, I imagine one of the two would suffer.

Well, I'm impressed. For me, three keeps me very busy. But if you can do it, go for it!

To study many languages at the same time you must have patience
