Get in the habit . . . we dare you!
We dare you to learn 40 Chinese words or phrases in 40 days . . . and keep on learning.
No cost. Just a challenge. Or rather, a series of challenges.
Our goal is simply to encourage people to learn Chinese by forming a habit of acquiring one new word or phrase a day . . . and share that learning with others on Instagram, Twitter, and/or Facebook.
It’s a new year; challenge yourself with the 40-day Chinese Learning Challenge!
The purpose is to encourage and motivate you to form a daily learning habit and share what you learn with a larger learning community.
You’ll know you received the daily credit when we like or comment on your post.
You must post your own original content. Your own handwriting, your own photos, your own voice or video recordings.
You allow us to share your postings.
You’ll need to respond to our questions or feedback, if any, within 24 hours to receive the daily credit.
You will receive a beautiful, engraved wooden certificate when you complete the 40-day challenge. We’ll make the certificate and ship it to you anywhere in the world at no cost to you.
On the 20th day of your 40-day challenge, we’ll offer you an option of receiving an encouragement magnet or pin for completing the first half of the challenge. It is free but with a $5 shipping charge. This is an option if you really want it.
From time to time we’ll post a question or call for a special posting. You’ll receive an extra credit that will be good toward the final mystery award.
On Instagram and Twitter, tag @goodcharacters so we will get a notice and we will follow you.
Tell the world something you learned today.
If you find good resources for learning Chinese, feel free to tag them as well so others can learn from them too. Let’s all learn together.
If you use Instagram and/or Twitter: You can earn the above certificate engraved with your name if you successfully complete the 40-Day Challenge, learning a new Chinese word or phrase every day for 40 days. Hand write or record a Chinese word or phrase each day for 40 days and post it. Tag us @goodcharacters so we can keep track of your posts. Hashtag #40dayc (it stands for 40-day challenge as well as 40-day Chinese) so you can get ideas for new words to learn from others and others can learn from you too. We want to encourage you to form a daily learning habit. You’ll have to post at least 5 days per week and complete your 40-day challenge within 8 weeks to receive our recognition. Use a format like “1/40 Today I learned 今日事今日畢, meaning never put off until tomorrow what you can do today! @goodcharacters #40dayc.”
If you use Facebook: We’ll award you the above certificate engraved with your name if you learn a new Chinese word or phrase every day for 40 days. Just hand write or record the Chinese word or phrase you learn each day for 40 days and post on our wall so we can keep track of your progress. You’ll have to post at least 5 days per week and complete your 40-day challenge within 8 weeks to receive our recognition. Use a format like “1/40 Today I learned 今日事今日畢, meaning never put off until tomorrow what you can do today!” but go ahead and be creative!
