I'm a little late to the challenge, but I'd like to join anyway.
LANGUAGE: Italian and Polish
CURRENT LANGUAGE LEVEL: HAH! No idea. I'm all over the place in terms of output. Maybe ~B1 for both? I'm definitely much better in Italian than Polish, though.
WILLING TO CORRECT LANGUAGE: YES, American English.
I am going to focus on doing scriptorium and reading aloud articles and books to improve my accent. At some point, it would be nice to transition to writing journal entries and recording some off-the-cuff speaking, but I'm not going to commit to that. I'm hoping I'll spontaneously have an urge to start doing that at some point. I've been having a hard time doing anything with Italian other than watching TV, so I'm hoping this gives me a little motivation.
Question #1: How does this works with joining late? Do I need to try to cram 50 hours/50,000 words into ~10 months, or is my finish line extended? As of now, I'm planning to do the first option (50hrs/50,000 words in ~10 months)
Question #2: For the 50,000 words, are words like definite/indefinite articles counted?
Question #3: Does it count if I record myself reading the same thing multiple times? For example, I recorded myself reading an article today. Could I record myself reading the same article tomorrow or next month and count it again?
