Italki Language Challenge Public Pledge Video

October 7, 2015

I’ve decided to take the Italki October 2015 Language Challenge and to help me to stay motivated during the course of the next two weeks I’ve made a public video pledge.

Here’s me talking about why I’ve decided to take the Italki Language challenge in English con un poco de español tambien (with a little Spanish too).

What is the Italki Language Challenge?

Italki is an online language learning platform where you can schedule one-to-one skype-based lessons with online teachers and/or other language learners.

From time to time, Italki run a language challenge the aim of which is to inspire you to keep focused and motivated with your language learning.

This particular challenge is just a short, two week challenge aimed at giving your language a quick boost!

The rules of the challenge are simple:

1. I pledge to take 6 hours of lessons during 18 -31 October. This equates to about three, one-hour lessons per week (which Italki consider to be the minimum for learning a language).

2. At the end of the challenge, if I complete my lessons, I will receive money from Italki in the form of credits which I can use on Italki to book more lessons.

Why should I take the Italki Language Challenge?

Firstly, because I’ve been learning Spanish  for nearly 3 years but I still find it quite difficult to hold a conversation on a variety of topics, so I’d like to increase my range of expressions during this challenge. Secondly, because I successfully completed the Italki challenge last year and it really gave my level of Spanish, and confidence in speaking, a boost.

My goal for this challenge is to increase my range of expressions so that I can speak more easily on a range of topics.

That’s it. My lessons are booked and I begin the challenge on the 18th of October. I’ll record another video at the end of the challenge to let you know how I got on.

Meanwhile, check out my Italki language video pledge. You might also like to watch the before and after videos that I made on the Italki challenge last year.

Let me know what you think.

¡Buenas suerte chicos!
