    /*changed commas for dashes*/
    scanf("%d-%d%d%d-%d%d%d%d%d-%d", &W, &XXX, &YYYYY, &Z);
    /*specified the length of the ints */
    printf("Language: %d\n", W);

    scanf("%d-%d%d%d-%d%d%d%d%d-%d", &W, &XXX, &YYYYY, &Z);
    Why do you have format specifiers for ten variables, but you only read into four?
