Do you think it is a bad idea to learn multiple languages at once? I have recently begun learning Japanese and I would like to learn Korean also but am worried adding another language now would put too much of a strain on what I am already learning.
What is your experience with this?
The thing with Japanese and Korean is that they have two completely different writing systems. Also, the grammar is totally different from European languages. The different levels of politeness and difference between male and female speech add another headache.
An experienced language learner can still tackle them at the same time, but if you wonder if it’s possible to learn two new languages at the same time, chances are that it would be too challenging for you.
Eric, I don't about Japanese and Korean.
But in case of European languages, I believe it will be easier and interesting to learn two at the same time.
I was learning French along with English. It was a wonderful experience because words are so much similar to each other.
Miriam is right, too. You 'd better have some command in one of them then start learning the second one.
