Whether it’s one of our longer Challenges, like the 15-Session Motivator, or a short one like the 3-Session Sprint, Drops Challenges are an excellent way to establish a habit.
This is because instead of focusing on the feeling of “ohh I have to practice”, you’re refocusing on the goal of completing the challenge. By the time you do, you’ve progressed in your learning language of choice.
Another great thing about challenges as learning tools is the sense of achievement they empower you with. That powerful buzz of “I’m making things happen” stays with you from when you join the challenge through to when you’re collecting your reward.
In the case of Drops Challenges, the reward is a uniquely designed badge, and visible progress in your learning language.
When you first discover Drops Challenges, we recommend that you test them all out and see which speed and frequency works for you. Once you’ve chosen your challenge or challenges, you can opt-into them every month, and let your learning schedule be one less thing to think about.
As a whole, we’re pretty pro Drops Challenges. Not just because we made them! But because we’ve done the research, and we know just how helpful challenges can be when you’re trying to reach a goal.
