Only one language can be your target and your level must be below intermediate, because the idea of the 6 Week Challenge is to make giant progress in one language. However, the bot can register the maintenance work you do on other languages as well.

Do you guys think I can register with Chinese (probably around B1 level)? Otherwise I will register with another language, and just count Chinese for the overall hours. The comparison with Chinese HSK levels into the CEFR is actually disputed, I will be doing HSK3 preparation, and also take the exam in those 6 weeks:

In 2010, Hanban asserted that the HSK's six levels corresponded to the six levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR)[11][25] However, the German[26]:1,3,5 and French[27] associations of Chinese language teachers reject this equivalency, arguing that HSK Level 6 is only equivalent to CEFR Level B2 or C1.
