Keep that New Years Resolution with the +1 Challenge

I came across the concept of this back in October and decided to do it this time with Italian. It's essentially a 90 day challenge to accomplish whatever language goal you set for yourself. It's pretty awesome and I think it's a cool way to stay motivated. You make an intro video explaining what you're doing, how you're doing it, etc, and then you make occasional update videos. You do it with a group of people so maybe that will keep you from abandoning it.

Here's the info: http://apolyglotworld.com/add1signup2

And here is my video if you want to see mine and subscribe to check my progress! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KXNTZtbfB-o

NOTE: I'm not associated with the people running this I just wanted to spread it to other language learners!

I filled out the application, but, I haven't sent it. I'm camera shy. So, I'm reconsidering. I will probably just use the DL streak to keep my goal. :)

I get an error message when I try the access the page, though the rest of the site still works.

Edit: Apparently they've now closed applications :-(

Actually it turns out something was just wrong with the site. I commented on one of his youtube videos and he said it should be back up and running in a couple hours

Hmm, that's strange since it originally said applications were available until January 15th

I guess they filled up faster than expected. Not sure why there is a need for a limit.
