Language: Spanish
Challenge: Full
Level: I was between A1 and A2 before but because of inactivy I'm back down to A1
Comments: I started learning Spanish last year and unfortunately it's been a lot of two steps forward and one step back. However, since I don't have as many work commitments over the summer I think now is a perfect time to really get serious again and the Super Challenge is a great motivator. Since I'm in the A1 area I think the hardest part will be finding reading material but I look forward to the challenge.

Two languages:

Language: Spanish
Challenge: Full
Current level: I was at one point definitely at least C1 but I've regressed/gotten rusty over the last year or two. Probably a B2 right now in production, but still a C1 in comprehension

Language: French
Challenge: Full
Current level: A1 in production, but probably at least B1 in comprehension due to Spanish knowledge

Soooo what's the policy on registering for languages which we are somewhat native in but:

1. Are illiterate in AND
2. Can't speak the higher registers nor slang because we didn't grow up in an environment where that language is spoken broadly but rather learned from our parents

Could I register for a heritage language fitting the criteria above (with the goal of learning to read/write and expanding my comprehension)?

Language: Dutch
Challenge: double
Current level: B2 passive
Comments, links: Double Dutch! Where's my jump ropes? Been slacking on my Dutch lately so hopefully this helps. Starting a lot earlier than I did last time, so maybe I'll stand a chance now! :D
