|Question:||Learning Finnish using the English dictionary|
However, if you are confident in English, and if you are mostly using English in your day to day life, it's probably fine to use it. It's really up to you..
then try to learn "triangles"...
(sorry dont know Portugues, but with a german example: talo -house, das Haus)
but surely it is in the beginning very difficult to switch between 3 languages...
I remember, how I struggled, when I spoken with foreigners English in Finland and then "gone back" to Finnish, then quite often some German words came up, what normally havent happen anymore at that stage.

You mean that one "should not" use the other languages you know(during the "critical" time when acquiring a new language)?
but it will be ok in future, i dont struggle anymore when i have to switch between English,German and Finnish
Norwegian is still to weak, I start searching words, when a third language is used(eg German and English)... hopefully I will reach sometimes in the future a level, that I am able to switch easily between the languages, while speaking Norwegian.
"should not" I wouldnt say, just that it is hard or even harder that it need to be... later when you feel better settled in the new language you have less problems...
mainly it is your decision what to learn, or the living conditions to go on with all theses languages parallel.. or leave some of then for a while behind you , to start later again, when eg Finnish is strong enough.
if i must choose , i would learn one language up to advanced level and just then start the next one... but that is just me..
