When can you start to learn a new language? What level do you need to have in a language you are learning, to be able to start classes in another language?

I guess the answer varies for the different people. I started learning Spanish and Italian (from scratch) and continued learning them simultaneously for a year. It was very confusing, but I still managed to keep up with the pace in the courses and pass all the exams. However, my results (and my confidence) improved dramatically when I made a break with one of the languages and moved on only with the other one. Of course everything always depends on the circumstances and your own attitude. But if you have a choice, I recommend learning one new language at a time and beginning with the other one when you have reached at least B2 in the others.

Some people can study multiple additional languages at the same time (both from scratch), but it hasn't worked for me. I tried learning Spanish and German at roughly the same time, but I found it wasn't very productive. Now, when learning a language, I focus solely  on that language. 

There are no hard and fast rules, but I'd recommend being at least a B1 (intermediate) before adding an additional language.

For me, I stopped practicing/learning English (me second language) when I became fluent. It's not perfect but it's enough for what I need so I am now practicing Spanish. I think it all depends on why you are learning the language. If you don't need to be at 100% then it's fine :)
