If someone aimed to learn all of the six biggest Romance languages - Catalan, French, Italian, Portuguese, Romanian, Spanish - is there a good line of reasoning for which order to learn them?

I found this article, which suggests an order of:

  1. Spanish and French, in either order - these have the most and best learning materials
  2. Italian
  3. Catalan - little material, but it's in between Spanish and Italian, which you now already know.
  4. Portuguese - easier after learning Spanish
  5. Romanian - the most different and most difficult

What order is the most efficient for learning all the languages?

  • I have seen several resources about this and I doubt that people can reach an agreement about this. This looks more like a question for a discussion forum. – AModHasNoName Jun 8 '18 at 21:20
  • I think it is a valid question, even though it is very difficult to answer based on experience or research. But difficult questions are acceptable on SE. One just needs to be even more careful about downvoting or deleting bad answers and non-answers. – Tommi Brander Jun 10 '18 at 16:26
