Seeing that no one has suggested a better option for April challenge - and that no one has really done it either, I offer an easy, but demanding task.

The May challenge would be a consistency challenge. Pick a task and do it regularly, ideally every day. Sign up for 6WC if you need more motivation, write about your progress.

Personally I choose watching something without subtitles every three days. I advise you to pick something you're struggling with. Attack it and see what happens.

Good idea Via Diva! Now I'm searching the right task for me, but I'll participate!

Very good idea. I'll try to improve my grammar in May and as a task will pick 'reviewing grammar rules every day (one very small topic a day)'.

I’ll likely go with reading a certain amount of pages every day, or every two/three days at least, coupled with vocabulary work. I already read more often than last year, but it’s not something I do on a regular basis. For example, I may read two days in a row, then nothing for a whole week.

I also need to actually look up words I don’t know. Since I can understand pretty much everything I read, I tend to never look them up ^^;;;

I'll copy the idea of agta: there are some grammatical constructions that I'm not using anymore, because I'm not sure. My task is to review them in order of being able to use them in a dialogue or in a letter without uncertanties.

Hello everyone,
the idea is really great.

I'm also going to do grammar. I just got the advanced grammar in use book and would do one
double page per day.
I'm very interested how this will be. I haven't done grammar exercises in English for 5 years
now.

So, how are your challenges going?
I've sort of failed mine (the conditions are really strict), but I haven't stopped watching stuff on and off after all.

Mine is going well, actually better than I expected since I'm reading something every day instead of reading every two/three days like I had originally planned. I skipped only once because I wasn't feeling well, but I already made up for it.

As for the vocabulary work I'm going to get started today, that was more a secondary task so as long as I do it before May is over, I'll be satisfied!
