It's possible to learn 3-4 languages Java, C++ and PHP or Pyton?

It's possible to learn 3-4 languages Java, C++ and PHP or Pyton? Or better learn only one from them? It's useful or useless? Or it's impossible?

Everything is possible. But I would recommend to concentrate on the language you actually need. Your time isn't limitless.

Quite a few Sololearners have done it.

If you want confusion, then follow that path. Posibility of learning various languages is there but the purpose is always for comparison of either var definitions, functions, objects, classes etc. If you are a beginner, i would suggest you finish up one language first, do practise and challenges in it, learn its ins and outs then go for another. You will find out that you are gaining more when you concentrate on a single entity rather than a combined one. Happy coding😉 Keep coding

If you are new in programming learn one of them first After that its not so hard to switch between languages Java and c++ have a lot in common for example Python is an easy language to learn

First define what you want to do. Then the language will be specified. Btw it's absolutely possible to learn multiple languages. Although not very useful.

That's a wrong combinations. Java should best be learned along with C#, Python with ruby C with c++ Php with javascript

I think it can be confusion learning all of them at the same time cause the syntax always differs a bit

I know and use Java, C++, Python, javascript and Swift at work, and I am not a programmer. I am a Graphic designer with no computer science background, all "self taught" through videos, articles, BOOKS, and sololearn. I've built non trivial software using all three that are in use at work. If I can do it, you definitely can. Bjarne Stroustrup the creator of C++ was asked what 5 programming languages should every programmer know. To summarize his answer he said; C++, Java and Python, if you know those you cant help but knowing a little about C, ruby, C#, and javascript. I found this to be true. Personally I learned C -> Python -> C++ -> javascript -> Java .... Even though it is often discouraged I highly recommend learning C and then C++ first because even though it seems hard, once you know them you will know what programming languages are actually doing and most other useful languages will be trivial to learn. Here is the link to the Stroustrup video if desired https://youtu.be/NvWTnIoQZj4

I am working through the Solutions in the Code Coach. I started with Python, then I moved to C# and I am currently working on Java. Other than the SL courses, I have never worked with any of these languages. I am learning a lot as I go through the process of seeing how to come to each solution in each language.
