I may be out of internet at some point during this challenge, since I'm moving soon. I'll be keeping track of all of my hours though, so would it be better to post them on twitter as one update, or post a bunch of updates at once, one for each day I missed? Or does it not really matter much?

I will definitely be doing this challenge. I have my final Russian evaluation at work on the 4th and will need a brand
new language for studying inspiration! I really want to do Spanish, keeping with the original theme of the challenge,
but if I end up going to Norway in August, it'll have to be Norwegian.

I've signed up for twitter @clanglog.

hjordis, it doesn't matter if you post multiple updates or just one. You just can't post
updates for more than one language in the same tweet.

clang, you are not registered with the bot yet. Tweet something like
@6WCBot I want to #register to study #Spanish intensively in May... #HTLAL user,
working #full-time

If you want to do Norwegian instead, that's fine too. The list of participants at shows all kinds of languages being studied.

...I caved. /facepalm. Lucky Charms's use of Twitter intrigued me; I can't resist the
temptation of following the Tweets von den Wise Guys. :P I'm signed up as RiverOverrun
for Polish.

I'm in for Spanish! Just been searching the internet for things that might help me speed
up my learning process and this has surely got to be it! I'm a beginner who gets by
using present tense, just moved to Gibraltar with work but I'm living in the local town
La Linea de la Concepcion and need to learn Spanish. My twitter is _amaltheia_ but I'm
not 100% sure how to use it because I didn't try properly before!

Yes, that's right , I'm changing my language right before the start date. There are just so many more opportunities
to practice Hindi in Eugene!

With Hindi, I'm pretty much starting from ground level and I'm really curious how much I can learn in 6 weeks!

My plan is to learn the alphabet, do one unit of Assimil Le Hindi Sans Peine a day, plus TY Beginner's Hindi/ TY Hindi
( a unit every few days).

We shall see... I my goal is to get through all 3 books in 6 weeks and see where I am at. I hope to be able to roughly
follow a Bollywood dialogue and raise the eyebrows of the staff at my favorite Indian restaurant in town.
