Launching a Special Challenge

I created the 6 Week Challenge several years ago and it has been faithfully running four times a year, always starting on February 1, May 1, August 1 and November 1, for a pattern that’s roughly 6 weeks on, 6 weeks off. The next challenge is almost upon us, starting on May 1. And this time, I want to mix things up!

Considering the Polyglot Gathering takes place in Berlin from June 15-18, just after the 6 Week Challenge ends, I thought it would be fun to have a special 6 Week Challenge that includes the possibility for people to show off their results locally at the Gathering (while not excluding those who can’t make it). And I was even able to convince some people to provide really awesome prizes for the winners!

So here’s the special challenge: give a short presentation in Esperanto after only 6 weeks of study, just like I did for Indonesian! If you manage to do so, you have a chance to win a week-long vacation, a book or a DVD.

There will be two brackets: one for people giving their presentation in-person at the Polyglot Gathering, and one for people who upload a video of their presentation to Youtube. The prizes are for each bracket – so we’re giving away not one but TWO free vacations!

If you were always considering learning Esperanto, or if you can’t resist a good challenge, this is your chance. Read more here.

Good luck!
