LANGUAGE: Danish

CHALLENGE: Audio only

CURRENT LANGUAGE LEVEL: A1/A2

WILLING TO CORRECT LANGUAGE: Yes English

COMMENTS: I've made a bunch of recordings with pauses and thought I'd record myself repeating after the native speakers. I figured I'd just halve the total length of the recordings to get the amount of time I'm actually talking. Is that ok?

@AlOlaf - Yes that is fine! Just getting the words out there is the point of the challenge. So repeating is fine, as is reading aloud, etc. Welcome to the challenge and good luck!

Yes it certainly does. Although the creation of original output will cause you to (perhaps) look up some grammar points, or learn new spelling, I believe transcribing will also help. It has certainly helped me with memorisation of Chinese characters. Pity I signed up with Italian. :)

LANGUAGE: Dutch

CHALLENGE: Full Challenge

CURRENT LANGUAGE LEVEL: A1.2 (Maybe, never tested)

WILLING TO CORRECT LANGUAGE: Yes, English

COMMENTS: After feeling inspired by some of my Dutch friends, I decided to take on this
language two months ago and I am making quick progress I think. This is partially due to
my background in German, but I am also infinitely grateful to the friends that helped me
as well. In order to keep myself from giving up and to not let the help I have received
go in vain, I want to take on this challenge. I'm starting a tad late, but I'll do my
best to catch up. It's gonna be quite a show! ;D Good luck to everyone!
