6WC - 6 Week Challenge - November 2016

Postby zenmonkey » Sun Oct 23, 2016 2:28 pm

It's coming up. Who is doing it for this 6 week period?

Instructions ... https://6wc.learnlangs.com/howto

I'll be doing Hebrew as my challenge language. I'm at a low A1 for that language.

I will be doing the 6WC in Thai again. The last one helped me spend more time with it even though since then I seem to have slipped into my old habits.

I'll be doing it in Spanish--hopefully for the last time. I have very clear goals to finish the textbook I'm using and read several books.

I think I'll tag along in Russian, but probably from a distance, as I'll have my hands very full from November onwards. Good luck to everyone making progress in their languages through this challenge!

I'll be joining in again as soon as I decide on a target language. So far there are three votes for German and none for the others. So, I might be doing German once again.

German – so I can get it to where I can have a basic conversation without it feeling like torture for the other person
Finnish – so I can get back on the pain train and make a little progress at last
Japanese – so I can knock the rust off before I forget it entirely

I'll be playing with Portuguese. In September and October I spent 6 weeks watching Portuguese-language programming for a total of 200 hours.

That's because some of us are waiting till the last minute to pick our language. It's a tough decision.

I'd forgotten about that. I was two days late for the last 6WC because of wavering about Spanish.
