Ideally? None. I didn’t ask to be born and I certainly didn’t ask to learn this dogshit language. If I had it my way I’d just point and grunt my way through life


johnngnky

~~if your pointing and grunting serves to communicate to others, it can be classed as a type of language~~


EoghanCasserly

Learning English has really inhibited my ability to point and grunt! 👉🫵👈 ugg 👉 ugh🫵🫵 ugg- THAT THING OVER THERE DUDE FFS

Duolingo offers around 40 languages, so that's the limit


Jollydancer

Have a look at 50languages.com.


Erik_DRZ

Uzbek is all you need really. So I would say one.


maxfist

Exactly. Uzbek is king.


Gnygstown

I would say four since I know three.


Ever_ephemeral

Learn Uzbek [here](https://youtu.be/bHX54GCrDB4) free!!

Uzbek is love Uzbek is life🙏🇺🇿


LeMagicSkeleton

That's a TINY amount of languages compared to the 6.500+ languages in the world. If you're going to start learning languages, you might as well aim for like 25% AT LEAST.


greasethatcrease

Might wanna check that math sweaty, there’s only 40 on Duolingo sooo where are the other 6,460 coming from 😅


LeMagicSkeleton

Your mom


likeagrapefruit

From /r/duolingo, where they're the subject of posts saying "when is Duolingo going to add X language already?"


greasethatcrease

“Hey I know a good number of your courses are rife with mistakes/bugs and it’d make the most sense for you to sort those out first, but can you add another half baked course before then for us to bitch about?”


CootaCoo

Learning 500 languages isn't very realistic, but *acquiring* 500 languages is totally doable thanks to the power of comprehensible input and Anki.


ReasonablyTired

What's Anki?


EoghanCasserly

Anki deez nutz

LPT: If you work hard and learn Latin, you will practically be C1 on French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, and Romanian.


ahos-adanos

Boring. If you learn Tamil, you'll basically become native in all languages that ever existed.


YuAnvar

Depends on context. English, French, German, Spanish, German is not good amount. One uzbek is a good amount


bonniex345

At least 2000,sir


[deleted]

All or nothing. This is the only way to be inclusive and equal.


ope_sorry

If you don't know at least 7 languages from at least 3 different language families, are you even bilingual?


BarenreiterBear

I think its a good idea to learn at least up to the equivalent of ten Uzbeks


Notreally_no

Why don't you do something **really** useful and resurrect these currently extinct tongues? You learn a language and get to feel really smug at the same time. Of course, you'll only have yourself to converse with but hey, as they say, ho. :D https://blog.lingodeer.com/9-extinct-languages/


[deleted]

Speak polish fluently and know all slurs. You are god then and don't need to learn anything else.


CaliforniaPotato

kurwa and you're already halfway there


[deleted]

Lmao yeah, but actually we have a LOT MORE slurs and they are awesome.


CaliforniaPotato

amazing

I have some kind of ocd so I always keep my language count at odd numbers, because I started with only 1 mother tongue. if you're bilingual from birth, you can keep them at even numbers. how this works is that I always learn two languages at once, and at the same level. so when I say I'm finally fluent, I have the same fluency at both, so I never knew 2 or 4 or 6 languages. I knew 1, 3, 5 and 7.


deenaandsam

Phew! Good thing I grew up bilingual since I prefer even numbers. But now I'm thinking, do I want to keep studying my target language?? Then I'll be at 3 and I'll always be upset it's an odd number and will have to learn a fourth. This is too much I'm unsubbing from all language subs


denevue

just like you should. never break the odd/even numbers rule or else Chomsky will haunt you every night in your sleep, and also in the bathroom


allieggs

Instructions unclear. I have native level understanding of one language I grew up with, but am laughed off the face of the earth every time I attempt to use it to say human words. What happens when you have to count half of a language? Do we, like, die? I’ve lost too much sleep over this.


Andrew852456

About three is a good language imo. The language of your father, your mother and Uzbek


Curious-Ad-5001

4 (serbian, croatian, bosnian, and montenegrin)


Apprehensive_Pride73

As many as you can/want. There's really no limit
