Alright, then I'm in for German. Hebrew is for me, not for them, and I'll do the challenge for Hebrew, too.

I fully expect to fail with this, given my total inability to do anything consistently. However, given said inability, this would probably be good for me!

So I will join, starting 01.01.20 and generic. The languages I will cover will mostly be French, Russian, and Spanish, but we'll see if something else sneaks in. I'm not sure I entirely understand all the rules, so I don't know what my goal will be, but I certainly don't expect to manage 366!

I'd like to sign up for Mandarin and French, starting January 1st. I hope this is allowed, given that I am still participating in the 2019 365-day challenge until January 30th, so I would be scoring (or losing) points in January for two challenges at the same time...

I'm signing up for Polish - Specific - starting 1st Jan 2020.
Thanks for organising Sedge, I need this to scrape off a lot of grammatical rust and to improve my listening skills.
