* TV-watching / poetry / food topics / conversation island creation (and all interested participants to use a common #tag for easy comparison)
* language X / language family Y / learn new script Z (to help wanderlusters decide on a language)
* A0 complete beginners' team / Assimil team / hare team / tortoise team (for more meaningful comparisons; for moral support)
For the A0 / Assimil etc teams, I mean you can ask on this thread if anyone else is in the same situation as you. I think someone (CarlyD?) complained recently that they were a complete beginner in their chosen language and therefore their scores were not exactly comparable with others', and the Challenge not as exciting as it could've been.
A0 and Assimil apply to me both! I didn't register myself as such with any tags via the Twitter bot. But if those in the same boat are here, well... me too.
I personally don't expect leaps and bounds in my ability out of this challenge, especially when I consider that I won't even have reached the active phase of Assimil by the end of the six weeks. But I feel that the public accountability will help me develop the momentum for a self-sustaining habit in Norwegian. I am giving substantial amounts of time and energy at present to three other languages, but I'm not enough of a beginner in any of them to feel that I should do a 6WC for them.
tl;dr, we'll see what it looks like in mid-June....
