Felino is on a distinguished road
My mother tonge is German. At school I learn English as my first foreign language and (unfortunately) Latin as my second. Spanish (which I learn by myself) is my fourth language, and I can say, it's not very difficult to get along with four languages. My grandmother even speaks eight languages: Her mother tongue is German. At school she learned English, French and Latin (but her French isn't that good and I think she cannot really speak Latin because they only translated texts at school.) Then she became a teacher of Russian and English. Because she was interested in those Slavonic languages she also learned Polish, Czech and Ukrainian, which she fluently speeks until now. My grandma takes away my doubts that your brain sometime is full and you only can learn a few languages.
