Dude! That's not fair! :) The Asians are getting up to 12 hours of advantage over some
people. What about setting the time as the first hour of May 1st whenever and wherever it
may happen?!?! (the truth is I can barely control myself!! It has been like waiting at
the door of a store for that product you want so bad at the morning of black Friday!!!)
hahahahaha

Don't worry, you also get to keep going until midnight on the last day, so you know what
Asian scores to beat ;-) I think it works out well. Otherwise some people would get less
daylight hours than others.

Question: It was mentioned that if we watch a movie in which the subtitles or the
original language is our target language we should post a percentage of it and not the
whole time since it wasn't 100% focus on that language. So, should we account for which
percentage? (On my opinion it should be 50%, but I want to know from the Challenge
Moderator)

50% sounds fair, because in a movie your focus is never entirely on the language. Less
than 50% if you find yourself ignoring the target language in favor of the other language
in the movie. It happens easily if the other language is one you know well. For optimal
learning, watch a movie with audio & subtitles both in your target language.

Well, I officially just signed up for Twitter, and I think I sorted out how to use the bot. I'm 2_J_L on twitter, which I plan to use exclusively for learning languages.

I have all my Spanish materials and am excited to get started. Wooo!

Hey there! I'm in too, if it isn't too late ;-)
I'll be studying Portuguese with "Português XXI" - absolute beginner. I just had two lessons: In the first my teacher and I discussed about the reasons I want to learn that language. In the second we discussed about the book we're going to use.
I follow the bot already @Twitter, but I don't know if I understood everything about posting. I'll go over it again. :-)

Edit: The other "part-time" will be Russian at A1-level...

In the registration, #part-time means how much you have to do for work / school at the
moment, i. e. someone declaring #full-time is expected to have less free time to study
languages than someone declaring #part-time or #free even.

You can only declare one target language, so you have to decide if Portuguese or
Russian is more important to you. You can of course work on both, and more if you want,
and track
it all on Twitter, but the nature of the challenge is such that you will want to study
your declared target language more often.

EDIT: If anyone needs to confirm if they're signed up, just check the list at
http://6wc.learnlangs.com/ . More than 50 people now. To make it easier, you
can sort by name, by language, by score etc., just click on the column header.
