One of the talks at the Polyglot Gathering was about a way to learn several languages at the same time. The speaker, Elisa Polese, explained how she teaches up to 10 languages simultaneously by comparing and contrasting them. It sounds like this technique can work quite well for similar languages, at least at the beginning. However I’m not sure if it would work at higher levels, as the differences between the languages might become more noticeable and more difficult to compare.
Have you tried to teach or learn several languages at the same time?
Over the next year or so I might try to improve the languages I know. I’m still thinking about how I’ll do this, but have some ideas.
