100 days of Chinese Challenge

After a mini vacation from Chinese during the holidays, there’s no better way to jumpstart your language learning than joining a language challenge. It’s a surprisingly motivating manner of keeping you on track while leading a busy life. For me, it’s about making sure I put in the time necessary to feel comfortable about working with Chinese before the end of the year as well as preparing for the HSK 5, so I set a 100 day benchmark for now.

What does it consist of?

Basically it’s about spending some quality time every day with Chinese. I have decided not to set a time limit for this because I never know what my day will be like.

I have a time tracker for Chinese I created a while back and that’s what I’ll use to track my daily work. The format has space to track four areas: Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing. You can also download a pdf of it if you like.

The idea is to update my progress on Twitter if you want to follow it and send me study ideas. At the 10 day, 30 day, 50 day, 75 day and 100 day marks I’ll have progress reports here on the blog. In these I can assess how I’ve been spending my time, if I need to make any changes and how I’ve been progressing.

If you have any suggestions or have done a similar challenge, or even better, if you want to join me, leave me comment on here or Twitter!

Wish me luck!
