My Experiences with the Tadoku Challenge

Hey guys! I’m almost exclusively talking about language challenges today – but then, I do love them.

I think I briefly mentioned that last month the Tadoku Challenge (Read More or Die) was running. If you don’t know, the point of this challenge is to read as much in your target language(s) (up to three) as possible, setting your own target to keep yourself on track.

Part of it is because the more often I post, the shorter those posts can be. It’s win-win for all of us! 😉
