Hacking Chinese Vocabulary Challenge, October 2020

Hacking Chinese vocabulary challenge, October 10th to October 31st, 2020

This month’s challenge over at Hacking Chinese is about learning vocabulary. This is of course a perfect fit for Skritter, which is all about characters and words.

Thus, Skritter will sponsor this challenge, which means that:

  • New users will get free access for the duration of the challenge, and that
  • Everyone, including current users, can win prizes, including three 6-month subscriptions, randomly distributed among participants in the top 10

Hacking Chinese Challenges are about building language skills through daily practice and friendly competition. You set a goal for the challenge and update your progress. You will then be shown how you’re doing compared to the goal you set.

Jake and I recorded a video where we discuss the challenge, including learning Chinese vocabulary, setting reasonable goals, building habits and much else. Check it out here:
