Do it as you prefer, tais challenge is supposed to be quite frete indeed. If you set a weekly goal, it is more
logical to post weekly, but it is ok to just report at the end of the month. What if you choose a daily goal, for
example? It doesn't make much sense to post every day and say you've read 100 words that day.

May Challenge - 100x

Pick one language-learning activity of your choice and perform it 100 times within the month of May.

Suggestions: read 100 pages, write 100 words, study and learn 100 Scandinavian words that aren't explicitly cognate with English or German, watch 100 minutes of video/film.

If the activity seems too easy, feel free to restrict the time frame, for example, write 100 words a week instead of the whole month.

If the activity you chose is a passive one, you may also add an output component not necessarily related to the 100 factor; for example, supposing you chose to learn 100 unique Norwegian words, you can now write 5 sentences using some of them; supposing you decided to watch 100 minutes of video, you can record one video of yourself making a summary of what you wrote and how well you understood it - or you can write in your target language about it.

This challenge is really meant to be flexible, based on my experience on the team(s) that introduced it, like Team East Asia. Hope it works as a motivator and for bringing us together more and more.

Good studies everyone!

May Challenge - Part 1/4

En semester på landet.

Det är väldigt kult att tillbringa några dagar eller veckor på landet då och då så att man kan lämna bakom sig kaoset och trycket av stora städer.
Man kan koppla mer med naturen, få sig lite frisk luft och samla tankarna. Jag gillar när jag åker dit med min familj. Ingen annan plats erbjuder en
så mycket; visst finns det inga stora kyrkor, museer, förströelser eller sådana, men det är ju lika bra (eller bättre!) att uppleva något annorlunda
ibland. Speciellt när man är en naturdyrkare som jag och har inte råd för att resa utomlands, det är bara att packa ihop och njuta av naturen!

åka dit (vard.) 1. bli upptäckt 2. misslyckas

I also thought it would mean "get imprisoned". I liked the ambiguity this introduces in
your text. I was thinking about how nice the Italian prisons must be on the countryside
:)

May Challenge - Part 2-3/4

Det var en gång två tvillingar som hette Bengt och Petter. Trots att de hade samma ålder, uppfostrades i samma familj och gick på samma skolor var de ganska olika. Bengt var inåtvänd, tystlåten och blyg medan Petter var utåtriktad, pratsam och sällskapssjuk, Bengt
ärlig, generös och ordentlig och Petter oärlig, snål och slarvig.
Petter var bättre än Bengt på nästan allting, såsom idrotter och kärleksliv, men Bengt fick alltid bättre skolresultat än honom. Petter var avundsjuk över det eftersom hon ville vara det bästa på allting och ville göra så att han skulle få ett bättre resultat på
slutprovet: han tog nämligen Bengts matematiknoter och förändrade formlerna så att Bengt skulle lära sig falska informationer inför provet.
Bengt hade övat mycket men var ganska nervös på dagen för provet eftersom han inte hade kunnat lösa någon övning under de senaste dagarna. Det regnade men han tvingades springa till skolan eftersom han inte hade kunnat hitta sin cykel.
Han hade hunnit gå in i klassrummet just precis innan provet började trots att han var andfådd, svettig och blöt. Provet var svårt men han tog i allt han kunde.
Veckan därpå fick Bengt och Petter resultaten: bägge två klarade provet.
Bengt fick 77.
Petter 76.
