After printing my string, how would i be able to add spaces without having to type the long string all over again?

This is my code:

learning="I love to learn many languages " learning.upper() 'I LOVE TO LEARN MANY LANGUAGES'

Now, what if I wanted to add spaces (escape sequence \n) anywhere in between the string, without having to type the string all over again?

blank_str = " " print("I love learning {} languages".format(blank_str*20))

Strings are immutable, but you can replace it with a new string made using portions of the existing one:

learning = "I love to learn many languages"
learning = learning[:15] + "\n" + learning[16:]

I love to learn
many languages
