I still think it's a good idea to have a time limit, to compare "results" more easily (regardless of whether there is a "test" or not).

I don't see a problem if you want to study Swedish for several hours a day (and keep a record of it), but that could be done anyway, without this challenge. I assume many of us already have a lot of languages to maintain, and although I would join this challenge (with a language I want to learn) I still consider it "bonus time", and will focus on my other languages.

I'd be more than willing to participate in another 6WC. I'd be fine with just about any language chosen, be it Georgian, Swedish, or any other language that you would like to see a larger group try and tackle. I've wanted to learn a bit of a Scandinavian language since my interest in languages was first ignited; only my inability to roll my "r's" held me back. :-(

OK, so who is in and for what language and method?
Should we have a deadline for the end of August?

Those wanting to do Georgian, I do have some online resources and one textbook, but it is in Russian. If we have a Georgian Bloc, I think we should extend our time to an even 2 months. The reason for this is the alphabet, which most people seem to struggle with, and the complexity of the grammar, specifically for the verbs. What do you think?

As for the question whether to extend the time frame to 2 months, I don't know whether I will have time for that, because my holidays are exactly 6 weeks long and I will probably be rather busy then.

I'd be very interested in participating as well.
But since I'm apparently from the same country as Zorndyke my hollidays are also exactly 6 weeks long so I'd prefer it if we kept the 6WC a 6 weeks challenge.
I'd be interested in trying Swedish

OK 6 weeks is fine. I will just put in extra time at the start.
Just a question though, do you all plan to keep studying the language?

I'd do Swedish. I only know a small amount and some German. I'd try doing finnish again but I still have a complete lack of helpful resources.
