4 more days!!!

I'm generally always sad to see the challenge end, but more so this time as I just started the Language Bootcamp and it would have been nice to do the two together.

Is everyone happy with their progress so far? My biggest goal has been listening comprehension and some speaking work, my two worst areas. Some real progress this time, but oh, so far to go.

Wow, only 4 more days?! That went fast.

I am reasonably content with what I managed to do. My 6WC TL (Dutch) has only been running about 30% of my total time, and I would have liked that percentage to be higher, but oh well.

Here's a question: does the bot have language tags for constructed languages? I suspect there's one specifically for Esperanto, but what about a generic #constructedlanguage tag for lesser known ones?

For the last week of the challenge, Dec 6 - Dec 12:

Total time: 600 minutes (10 hours)

That's the most time I've spent on Greek so far! The time I spent on Greek over the course of the 6-week challenge was 2,648 minutes and over 44 hours.

It looks like you’re not the only one that’s excited. I see two people have already registered. I’m struggling with my eternal dilemma of which language to choose — German or Japanese.

Didn’t you just get done telling me you hate pushing languages on people? Besides, that’s Rick’s area.
