2015 June Language Challengers- Make a Public Video Pledge and earn 50 ITC!

May 14th, 2015 | Posted by Jim in announcement | feature | Language Challenge

So… in the spirit of giving, we’re offering this bonus again to help you complete the Challenge!

If you’ve signed up for the italki June 2015 Language Challenge, we’re giving away even more ITC to motivate you to succeed!  Do you really want to complete the challenge?  Use peer pressure (in a good way) to help yourself achieve your language learning goal! Life Hacks research has shown that if you put yourself up to something by doing it in public, you follow through because others are watching. Things that you put on the Web have a better chance of getting done!

BONUS 50ITC! Upload your Language Challenge Public Video Pledge

Make a Public Video Pledge by uploading a video to YouTube or Youku before you begin your first session (or your first few sessions).

What should you say in your Public Video Pledge?

Youtube video:

Youku video:

  • Speak in your native language
    • Tell us why you are taking The Challenge and what language you are learning
    • Tell us what you will commit to (e.g. I promise to take at least 3 sessions a week)
    • Tell us your Language Challenge Goal (e.g. Five minute conversation with a co-worker)
  • Speak in the language you are learning
    • Repeat the above in the language you are learning
    • If you can’t say anything, or your language level is at a beginner level then try to say a few words you know in the language or just say you have no ability.
  • Label the video: (italki username)’s  italki June 2015 Language Challenge Public Pledge
    • The video should not be longer than 2 minutes in length.
  • Write a Notebook Entry “I’ve made a Public Video Pledge for the italki June 2015 Language Challenge” and paste the YouTube/Youku URL.

We will immediately award you with 50ITC once you post your notebook entry and we verify the video! Just send us an email to support@italki.com and let us know your username so we can view the Notebook entry with the Public Video Pledge link!

If you’ve signed up for The Challenge and you really want to finish, you should make the Public Video Pledge now!  You’ll get paid for it and it will help you complete the Challenge!
