by the way, would you accept "to face a challenge"? Suggested by an American student of mine...
Sounds logical to me.
Thanks

    There is an area of nuance to explore.

    To me, face a challenge connotes that the challenge is present. If you want to suggest that one actually takes it on, I would say face up to a challenge.

    Yes, celinem. Face a challenge works. It also makes me think of the expression: to take on a challenge.
    On a different note, I am going to see Celine Dion in concert this coming sunday and I'm very excited!
