Learning Vocabulary in More than One Language

November 07 at 14:39

I use flashcards (Anki) daily as a part of my language learning routine (in addition to lots of comprehensible input of course). Whenever I create a card, I try to add lots of possible connections (phrase for context, images, synonyms, antonyms) which facilitate recall. However, I have always kept each card to just English/French or English/Italian because it can be hard for me to switch between speaking French or Italian without stumbling into "Fritalian." However, in the spirit of creating more connections, I am wondering whether I might also try adding the French equivalent to my Italian flash cards and vice versa. That could also help find "gaps" in my vocabulary.

Does anyone have experience with this? What do you think?
