@IronMikeSwims Registration unsuccessful: please tell me your target language, e. g. write '.@6WCBot #reg learning #Spanish in May'

So I wrote back in the format the bot recommended and with #Coptic. Haven't gotten a reply yet, so not sure if I was successful or unsuccessful. :?

I tried to go to "my page" from the last 6WC and the page didn't work. Does that page not exist till 1 May?

If I don't get a response from the bot by tonight, I'll message Sprachprofi.


Oh, so you can check here; the homepage clears out after the end of the last 6WC so that's all the people signed up for this round. Doesn't look like #Coptic has worked though :?

Oh dang, I found that page, but wasn't sure it was current. Thanks. I wrote to Sprachprofi.

You're not a C1 (or B1 or whatever) if you haven't tested.

This time it'll be French. I took the test from TV5Monde (Learn French section) a few nights ago and got A2. Most likely it's lower than that.

I've signed up with Swedish. I use another app to log active study time and I was wondering if it is alright to update once a week?

Yep, I've tried #cop (which is on the ISO code list) and #Cop and #Coptic, but none of them work. Neither does #Other. Unsure what to do.

I'm in! Starting both this and the Super Challenge might be a good way to get me back in the swing of things. :) My French is already too good for this challenge so I'll sign up for Italian! I started Italian at the beginning of January, but then I burnt out after about a month, so I didn't even end up doing the February 6WC like I had planned to. So, I'm still pretty much a complete beginner at this point.

I might try some L-R (with text and audio both in Italian) right away, simply because I was able to get both the ebook and the audiobook of the first Harry Potter book in Italian on Overdrive thanks to #HarryPotterAtHome, and have those for three weeks.

You have to use multilingual. I've done Sicilian a couple of times and that was my only choice.

Thanks lingua. Then when you report, do you just note that you're doing Sicilian?

You just continue to use #multilingual unfortunately.

I'm tracking Karelian as North Saami, don't want to submit it as Finnish. Not sure how much I'll actually do :?
