What's the best way to keep one language while learning a similar one?fiction

When I studied Spanish it essentially washed the French from my brain. Now I want to study Italian, but it is so close to Spanish that I worry that it will obliterate whatever Spanish is left in my head. What are strategies for saving one language when learning another one?

I don't think you have mastered a foreign language yet. You shouldn't study a different language before you are fluent in the current language you are studying. You will just confuse yourself or forget.
