[Update] More Public Video Pledges

January 21st, 2014 | Posted by Jim in Language Challenge | Motivation - (Comments Off)

Continuing from our first post of Public Video Pledges, we’ve received more from dedicated Challengers all over the world who have bravely posted their Public Video Pledge! (Click here for more details)

We are very impressed by the massive turnout of Challengers from all around the world.  As we mentioned at the start of the Challengewe’ve got hundreds of Challengers learning more than 30+ languages on italki!  However, we did not mention the number of people who are not just learning one language… but learning two… or even three languages for the Challenge!  If you haven’t started learning a new language yet, you need to watch these Public Video Pledges as we hope these will serve as some inspiration for you to kickstart your New Year’s Resolution to learn a new language now!

Tom from San Francisco
We were blown away with this Public Video Pledge because Tom is not just learning one language… or even two langauges…  He is one of the few (there actually could be many more) that are learning 3 languages for the Language Challenge!  His Public Video Pledge is a bit longer than others because he speaks in 3 different languages (French, Norwegian, and Chinese) in the video. Please let him know how awesome he is by commenting on his post! You have to check this out!
