Ask-A-Linguist Message Details

Subject: Can you read too much in a foreign language?
Question: Hi! I am bilingual, and am wondering if can be dangerous in some way to your grip of one language, if you read and is exposed too much to the other. I like and prefer to read in the one language, but material and books that I am interested in tend to be more widely available in the other. Could it be harmful to my use of the first, reading too much of the second? Yours, Axel
