6WC 6 Week Challenge - Feb 2018

Postby smallwhite » Wed Jan 24, 2018 4:48 am

Challenge XXVIII - Feb 2018

Starts: Thursday, 1st Feb 2018 00h00m01s your time
Ends: Wednesday, 14th Mar 2018 23h59m59s your time


The 6 Week Challenge is a challenge to upgrade your language skills in one language from beginner to something more worthwhile, and to see if you can find more time to study languages when competing with other participants in a global highscore. 6 Week Challenges start on February 1st, May 1st, August 1st and November 1st every year, so there is a rough 6 weeks on / 6 weeks off pattern. Note that you can only do the 6 Week Challenge with a language that you're a beginner at or lower-intermediate at most. This allows for a more just comparison between participants.

The bot is already taking registrations. Join us now!

The bot only knows ISO-639-1 languages.

ISO 639-1 codes here

The three tags #ie #multilingual #linguistics which are all grouped together as "Multilingual" on the scoreboard can be used if you don't want to differentiate between several languages.

Also available are: Nahuatl, Ancient Greek, #ASL, #Cantonese. I don't know what the tags are for the first two.

Just registered with Basque. I'm doubting I'll get too much done with it (I'm mostly focusing on Assimil rn) but it's the most beginner of my languages, so maybe this'll make me buckle down and focus :D

The 6WC starts in less than a day!

While RDearman's Study ends at the same time, meaning I can finally put Greek on the back burner, or in the incinerator. I still have a few things on hand that I want to read a little, though, so I'm still signing up with Greek this 6WC.

Anybody have issues with the bot not registering your time? No updates for the last 19 hours. Am I doing something wrong? I already tweeted at the bot and junesun. @jeremikress on Twitter if someone wants to check.

Maybe if you try without extra words beyond the tags and times. I know there have been problems before and sometimes the bot seems finicky about the order or the way you word your tweets. Also the junesun account is no longer valid. She’s now using @GermanPolyglot
