Hi, I’m a bit torn as to when and how to attempt to “bring back” my dormant Russian or add on another language, as I seem to have a problem mixing up words in two or more languages I might study at the same time… kind of like words from one language “leaking” into the other.
I had this happen to me terribly when I first started learning Russian 40 years ago and my previous Spanish would insert itself into my Russian sentences. It was so frustrating at the time that I dropped Spanish. Ironically I never had this trouble with Russian and German cohabitating in my brain.
The reason I ask is that most of my other languages are dormant, other than English and Irish, which I’m actively learning. I’m between an A2 and B1 level (I think) in Irish, but am afraid I’ll lose some of it or it will take over my Russian if I try to reactivate my Russian.
Any thoughts or tips about introducing new or old languages when you’re already studying another would be appreciated. Thanks!
