Can uTalk a new language in one month?

Happy Thanksgiving to all our friends in the USA, and around the world! Before we know it, it’ll be Christmas, and then we’ll be into 2015. Time flies!

Here in the EuroTalk office, we enjoy a bit of healthy competition, and with the new year approaching, we’ve decided it’s a good time to take some of our own advice and try learning a new language, using our uTalk app. We’ll all be taking on different languages, and competing against each other to see who can learn the most in the 31 days of January. What could possibly go wrong?

The rules are simple:

1. The winner will be the first person to score maximum points on uTalk in the language of their choice, or the person with the highest score on 31st January.

2. The language chosen can’t be one we already speak.

3. Competitors must start from zero points on 1st January.

4. To join the challenge, we’ll need to have access to an iPhone or iPad with the free uTalk app installed.

Through regular check-ins, we’ll be keeping an eye on and reporting our progress both here and on our Facebook and Twitter, and we hope you’ll be there too, cheering us on.

If you fancy taking up the uTalk challenge for yourself, we’ll be very glad of the company, so drop us an email with the language you’ve chosen, and we’ll send you over a code to unlock the Essentials upgrade (worth £6.99) so you can get started completely free on January 1st.

And in the meantime why not let your friends know which language you’re planning to learn? (There are 100 to choose from, but don’t panic – you’ve got a month to think about it!)

So far, our competitors include:

Ioana, who’ll be learning French

Nat, taking on Icelandic

Steve, who fancies a go at Thai

Al, tackling Chinese (Mandarin)

Symeon, who’s torn between Greek and Turkish

… and Liz, who took a while to decide but eventually settled on German.

Wish us luck!
