Hi friends! In this video I discuss the similarities, differences, level of difficulty and tips for learning Korean, Japanese and Chinese, either separately or all at the same time. People often ask me if its possible to learn more than one language at a time - and I say it most definitely is! Stay tuned until the end for some language-learning tips specifically for these languages.

Do you have any other tips? Do you learn any of these languages at the same time? Share your story in the comments!

PLEASE READ

I love talking to you guys on Tumblr, Instagram, Twitter, in the comments and via email, but sometimes I receive a lot of messages and it's too much to reply to - so it might take me a while to get back to you. Please be patient and know that I do care about you and I'll do my best to get back to you as soon as possible!
