After the great success of the last four editions of our Top 100 Language Blogs competition (results for 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011), the bab.la language portal and the Lexiophiles language blog are announcing the start of this year’s contest with the passion for languages being the protagonist: the Top 100 Language Lovers 2012 competition.
As always, we need your help to find the best of the best for the following categories:
1. Language Learning Blogs (blogs about language learning & teaching)
2. Language Professionals Blogs (blogs from translators, interpreters etc. on the professional usage of languages)
3. Language Facebook Pages (Facebook pages about language, language learning etc.)
4. Language Twitterers (Twitter accounts focused on language, language learning etc.)
The nominations for the Top 100 Language Lovers 2011 competition are open until May 13th, 23:59 pm German time. Nominate your favourite blogs, Facebook Pages and Twitter Accounts by sending an e-mail with the URL to stefanie (at) bab (dot) la or just leave a comment below.
There are no strict boundaries for your nominations: as long as passion for languages is involved, the blog or Facebook page or Twitter account you have in mind fits into our competition! Just to give you an idea, main topics could be about tips on how to learn a language, language teaching, commenting on translations, strategies for interpreters etc.
Hurry up, the deadline to nominate your favorites is Sunday May 13th! After the nomination phase you will be able to give your vote to the most promising participants for each category. The final ranking will be based half on the your votes and half on our internal ranking. Results will be made public on May 31st. If you need more information about the ranking criteria and the competition in general you can find it in the article about how the competition works. If you have any further questions, just ask stefanie (at) bab (dot) la.
