2016 may be almost over, but we’re here to tell you that it’s never too late! There’s still time left to make a final push to do make good on your language learning goal for 2016, and to set up a good habit for the coming year. With that in mind, we are bringing you our 2016 Year-End Challenge!
Here's how it works:
Check your stats from the last week (or your most recent stats if you're new) and commit to raising your number of cards to a certain number per day until Dec 31, 2016.
Start with a number you can realistically do and feel good about until the end of the year — If you don't have a goal number in mind, a good example to start with would be +5% of your last session. If you are at 0 or just starting out, setting a goal number of 50 is a good amount to start with to get on track.
- Commit to the challenge on the forum by posting your target language, the +% you chose, and your goals for Day 5 and Day 10.
Report in on Day 5 (Dec 26) and Day 10 (Dec 31) to let us know how you’re doing! If you’ve got friends and family learning with Lingvist, challenge them to do it and post it on the Forum too!
The challenge will run from 00:00:00 GMT Dec 21, 2016- 11:59:59 GMT Dec 31, 2016. You can join the challenge after that time — in fact we encourage anyone to join at anytime! — but if your goal is not only language skills but a prize, then you'll have to join by the deadline.
Early in the New Year, we’ll be randomly drawing a name from all eligible community members who participated in the challenge for some Lingvist goodies! Winners will be contacted via email for further information.
To be eligible to win, learners must:
Join the challenge by publicly posting their target language, number of cards you want to do, and goals for Days 5 and 10 by 23:59:59 GMT Dec 21, 2016.
Report in the thread with their progress for Days 5 and 10 with your results.
Note: Lingvist team members can also join in the challenge, but will not be eligible for prizes.
Let’s remember that we’re all doing this challenge together. Support and encourage each other as much as we can. If you lose motivation, the community is here to help you keep going.
