We wanted to thank everyone who participated in the 2014 italki New Year’s Language Challenge. Our Marketing and Customer Experience Manager, Lexie finished the challenge and posted her Challenge Video Review. We asked other winners of the Language Challenge to share their final Challenge experiences by video as well and received a lot. Here are the top 5 videos that we received!
LindsayDoesLanguages from the United Kingdom
20 Lessons in 6 weeks Learning German COMPLETED!
The was by far one of the most creative and entertaining videos we received as Lindsay (who is also an avid language learning enthusiast and blogger) really conquers learning German in just 6 short weeks!

Lindsay actually posted a Public Video Pledge when she began the Challenge.

Lindsay also blogs about her experiences with the Language Challenge on her own blog. Read it here. We just wanted to share this little exerpt from her:
“I definitely feel more confident speaking German and other than the odd case issue or separable verb stumbling me, I think I’m alright. Although I still make mistakes (most of which I noticed post-production and kicked myself for!) it’s still a level I’m proud of and a nice solid base to begin to move on to my next personal language challenge…a little bit of Dutch!”
John from the United States
20 Lessons in 6 weeks Learning Portuguese COMPLETED!
John is learning Portuguese because he is going to the World Cup in Brazil! He pretty much started with ZERO Portuguese ability. You be the judge of whether he improved or not. His improvement is absolutely amazing and inspiring!
