I like doing something like a text editor because a basic text editor is really simple to make but you can add a lot of features that can help you learn lots of different parts of a language.

i really like this! the predictability of starting with the basic functionality of the text editor seems like a nice way to get through the learning curve, and then the freedom to add features and be creative seems like a great way to get to know the strengths and weaknesses of the new language. really cool.
