Have you ever learnt two languages at once?
This is the first time I’ve done this kind of blog, in that it’s an open question to all of you who read.
I’m not sure I’ve mentioned it in a previous post, but I’m learning Spanish. I’m about level B1 and go to a weekly two-hour course. I started properly learning in September 2013.
I’ve always wanted to learn a Scandinavian language. I don’t know what it is about them, but I think it’s the German link. I have a “Swedish in 30 days” set I bought a few years ago but never really started. I taught myself a bit of Danish before I went to Copenhagen in 2015, but afterwards never carried on.
The problem is (which is really a true first-world language-lover problem): I don’t want to give up Spanish, but I think it’s finally time to pick up a Scandinavian language (I’ll most probably start with Swedish). However, I would want to do a class in Swedish, not just teach myself, due to motivation reasons.
So my question is: have any of you ever had experience learning two languages intensively at the same time? How was/is it? What languages were there? Do you have any tips?
I look forward to hearing about your experiences!
