I wrote previously about a month ago about taking up Spanish on top of the other three languages that I’m studying, German, Russian, and French. While it started out well, as soon as other life responsibilities fell into my lap (like midterms), things fell apart quickly. I’ve not so much as touched Spanish in the past few weeks, and indeed, I’ve been slipping on all of my languages to some extent. I’m not happy about the matter, but I suppose I should report failures here as well as successes, so as to give a balanced view of things can go when trying to learn multiple languages. 🙂
I’d still like to study all four, but I’ve not quite figured out the best way to do it yet. I mentioned staggering the languages in my previous post, but I doubt I’d stick to a strict schedule (Spanish on Mondays, German Tuesdays, whatever).
For those of you who are tackling multiple languages at once, how do you handle this problem?
