This is just to say that as a native Spanish speaker, I would be willing to give you guys feedback on your writing should you post it on this thread. I would also have a go at any specific questions you might have about my language.

Do give it a try, Arekkusu! :-) I'm amazed at how much of an effect the Tadoku challenge
had on me. I read almost 1000 pages, all in my hardest languages, which have, by now,
become quite a lot easier to read, especially Dutch. To compare: last month, and most
months before, I probably read 30 pages in these languages. I would have read a bit more
in my easier languages such as French, but certainly not more than 500 pages all in all.
Accountability and friendly competition are key for me.

Yes, it is awesome. I can't wait to start.

Just to be clear, this is not a tadoku challenge, is it?

No, it's not about reading. You can do anything in your time. I referred to the Tadoku
challenge because their Twitter integration really helped me spend a lot of time on my
target languages this month, and I'm copying the Twitter integration for the 6 Week
Challenge now, albeit monitoring purely time spent, not pages.

I registered. My goal is to finish both Pimsleur and TY. We'll see after that.

I am really excited about this challenge - I have lots of plans. :) Since I don't have Twitter, I started a log book and I will update there.
