Language-Learning Challenge #3: Round-Up Quiz

For the past few weeks, we've tested your language learning with the "Hotel King"True or False Questions and "Love Myself or You"One-Liners. It's been great seeing the huge response and conversations in Discussions!

The answers to last week's challenge questions in Chinese were 1. b) "You must listen to me!" and 2. a) "Don't even think that I'll be going easy on you." Hope you got them both correct!

We mentioned that participation in these activities will earn points towards gifts such as books from Tuttle Publishing and other Viki merchandise.

Here is how the points system works:
  • Participation will be awarded 1 point per challenge while every correct answer will earn an additional point per question.
  • Up to 3 extra points can be earned each week by contributing to the Discussions page topics. Please note that these must be quality comments, not just simple responses. 
  • Bonus points will be available for things such as most correct translations and sub-a-thons.
The current leaderboard stands as follows:

Maybe you didn't have enough time to join in recently, but it's not too late to start your language-learning journey with Viki so now is your chance to quickly catch up!

Next week, we will have our first Tuttle book giveaway. Only users in the Top 10 ranking will be eligible, with one lucky language learner walking away with a book gift.

Continue earning points with this week's Language-Learning Challenge: Round-Up Quiz! The questions will review Chinese, Thai, and Korean - the three languages we've featured so far. There is a bonus point available for up to 5 users who submit the most correct translation for each language.
