I think if you get too caught up in winning, you miss the whole idea. I was never an "official" entrant but liked the idea of the "challenge". I challenged my toughest opponent- myself. Unfortunately, I neglected my second target language during the 6 weeks but now plan to do another blitz/intensive to make up for it. The challenge showed me how much I could accomplish when I really devoted my time and energy to it. To me, that is more important than what others accomplished. I do, however, admire and applaud those who excelled beyond my efforts.

It's awesome to look at the sign-up list for the
Tadoku Challenge and recognize names from the 6 Week Challenge. amy_burr, AnyaPop and
JPP4, will you dominate this challenge as well?

I am amy_burr and no I probably won't because I have less time for this than I did for
the last one, but I will do as much as I can! And also I might be doing another challenge
at the same time...so that might be kind of a problem. What can I say, I am addicted to
these now!

Someone on Youtube is doing a French challenge:

I think I'll do it. My French is terrible and I would feel bad if I forgot all the French
I learned at school.

Unfortunately I had too much going on for this. I started school full time and work part time, which became full time, as well as having things I had to study on my own. However, in the time I studied I got a good introduction to Indonesian and plan to come back to it at some point in the (probably distant) future.

For now, I will be doing the Tadoku challenge. One of the other things I have to study is Japanese, especially reading, and I need to do that until the end of July, so the timing is perfect. I have a short break from classes in August, and I will no longer need to study my other things, so I will probably join the next 6 week challenge, this time for French. I've been meaning to improve my French for a few years now. I'm looking forward to it. :)

Yeah, I think I'm going to attempt my best at doing that French challenge. It can't hurt.

Even I have lost my spin at the beginning of the last challenge I would like to take part in the next 6 week challenge.
Is there already a new thread for it? @sprachprofi Is it going to start in August or haven't you decided yet?
