Mine have done it twice and really enjoyed it. They have new software now, so I'm not sure what it's like.

dd did it a couple of times and got to a regional semifinal twice. The time pressure tests are hard. It does depend on the language though , some are tougher than others. Greek was particularly demoralising, Kazakh tough, Japanese quite fun. It certainly gave her a taste for languages, some of which she would never otherwise have tried, and confidence to learn.
