Joining late, but whatevs. I'm in it for the vocab, not the prizes. ;)

Language: Hungarian
Estimate of pre-April vocabulary: 0
Goal: 300
Words Learned in April: 76

I'll be going to Budapest at the end of April, so this is really perfect for tracking my travel-phrase cramming!

I originally said April 5th was going to be the deadline to join, but I've made an exception and added you. Welcome to the game :)

(And btw, I'm going to Israel at the very end of April/early May, too :) That was kind of my motivation for starting this, to keep myself as focused as possible during my 1 month of studying Hebrew before I go.)

Anyway, thanks for the updates, everyone :) You can check out the graphic for week 1 here: https://infogr.am/april_vocab_week_1

I think I was careful/thorough in making it, but if there are any mistakes, please let me know.

Happy (continued) learning!

I have just passed the halfway point on my challenge and it is still only the 13th day of the month, so I am a little ahead of schedule.

I'm here to report my progress. I'm pleased to find I'm on schedule and at the half-way mark. I've been very good about adding new words and doing reviews (studying consistently is something I struggle with).

As I mentioned on my log - I need to bow out of the Japanese bit of this. That said I've learned 85 new words putting my total German words for April at 113.

Just checking in at the 2 week point with a total of 450 new words. I think my eyes were bigger than my tummy when I wrote down an initial goal of 2,000 in a month, but I'm happy to make progress all the same.

I was getting annoyed with the course I was using, so I switched courses, but I will still go for the same number of words. I'm up to 406.

My total so far is 801 words. I guess I am easily on track for my goal, so I may have to modify it and see how it goes. I was not actually overly happy with the time I was able to devote to the challenge, so all in all, I can not really complain with my total thus far.

I hope everyone else have been having a more productive time with it. Good luck for the following week :)


From 801 to 1308.
