“Should I learn two languages at once?”
It’s a question I get asked all the time. And I understand where it’s coming from.
You see me online, speaking 6 languages. You see other polyglots around the world who have command of seven, eight, nine languages – and you think, hey! I want some of that action. I want to speak all of these languages.
And I want to do it all at once.
So then you think to yourself – how hard can it be? If this guy speaks six languages, why can’t I learn two at the same time?
Well. I get it. I really do.
But learning two languages at the same time usually isn’t a good idea. Unless you just want to practice hearing and pronunciation in multiple languages.
Let me explain.
