UPDATE: Nominations are closed. Voting has started!
After the great success of the last three editions of our Top 100 Language Blogs competition (results for 2008, 2009, 2010), the bab.la language portal and Lexiophiles language blog are announcing this year’s contest with some minor changes: the Top 100 Language Lovers 2011 competition.
Passion for languages is still the protagonist of the competition but this year we are also taking Facebook pages and twitterers into consideration, hence the new title 🙂
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 16th, 23:59 hours German time. Nominate your favorite Blogs, Facebook Pages and Twitter Accounts by sending an e-mail with the URL to giulia (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 Monday May 16th! After the nomination phase, you will be able to give your vote to most promising for each category. The final ranking will be based half on the users’ votes and half on our internal ranking (more information on the ranking criteria here). Results will be made public on June 1st. If you’d like to know more about how the competition is run, please read our how the competition works article. If you have any further questions, just ask giulia (at) bab (dot) la.
