I think you can only get a breakdown for tags in general not tag by language - go to Study time by Tag. You can theoretically extract that data manually by hovering your cursor over the bar graph, but that's a little tedious I guess. I agree, it would be useful to have it separated by language.


Well, you can toggle the languages on and off by clicking on the names of the languages in the legend under the graph. Maybe not quite what you're looking for, but at least you can see tags per language that way, even though it means looking at each language separately.

Ah, thanks, that didn't occur to me! You're right, I mainly meant the stats in the table, but the graph is already helpful! Cool!

@blaurebell: Thank you very much for your explanation. Now I never thought about such things before; I'm only a "user".

This is the first time I have done one of these challenges. I have already made some newbie mistakes.

First, I did not realize that I was supposed to track other languages besides the beginner one (Russian) I am doing for the challenge. I fixed that and started also tracking Danish. Second, I didn't think much about what tags I should use. I think I have a set of tags that make sense to me now.

It is fun :)

I couldn't have put it better myself!! For me it is also a first time, and I still know, what I should do better next time.
But it is really fun - and I work more than before. :mrgreen:

Apparently I've done a decent amount of French! … during my ASL 6WC. Fully 25% of my 6WC studies have been in French rather than ASL. Oops! :oops:

Tell me about it, 1/3 of my study time is apparently going into French, the rest into Russian! And it's not even that I'm really studying, I'm just watching TV and listening to audiobooks. I wish I was at this stage with Russian!

I just wanted to beat you for once. :D But there's still plenty of time. The owl might get tired of flying.

I generally only stick to the language I signed up with during the challenge, so I only look at the Target Language rankings.

Right now, I'm in 2nd place. I know it won't last more than a minute, but wow. I generally hang out in 4th to 5th.

I guess the combination of absolutely wanting to conquer preterits and bad weather are working out good for me. :lol:
