Can a student learn two or even three languages at the same time effectively enough?
What is the best method for learning if I want to learn 3 languages? To learn them at the same time or to learn one by one?

I believe one can learn 3 languages at the same time, here is South Africa, students learn 3 languages , English, Afrikaans and a choice of a third African language
It depends on the level, the student has reached at each language and how much time and resources they have for each language. If enough time and effort is given to each, of course it is possible. However it could become confusing and if all the time and effort was on one language, that language would improve much more.
this is a great question! learning 2 right now
I think to focus on one language at a time might improve the rate in which you become fluent in that language, although learning multiple languages at once and doing so effectively is very possible. It will take a bit of hard work and dedication, but if you want to achieve that goal, go for it!
l think it is possible 👍
Yes a student can learn more than 2 languages, it won't be easy but if a student puts their mind to it then yes they will be able learn it effectively. Like the country I live in which is SOUTH AFRICA, when I was in school I had to Afrikaans and IsiZulu and that's together with English. So yes we did 3 languages.
It is possible but it may take longer to learn any of them with any degree of fluency. I advise learning one first, the one that you will need the most. once you have a reasonable level it will become easier to learn the other two. The brain is like a muscle. If you pace yourself then it will grow and develop quicker. If you push too hard all at once you will strain it and slow the process
I guess it's possible, if they dedicate enough time and effort and maintain consistence.
For me, better to learn each language one by one to help your mind in control. However, if you can do it all together then it would also be great but keep in mind that mental health is important.
Yes it is possible. But then we can commit mistakes in those languages because we can use the structure of one language in other as well and if the structure is different so then we can commit errors and mistakes.
I think you should start with learning one language first. Doing that will allow you to master the grammatical,lexical and phonological features and ultimately will reach native level
