    5. Hi,

      The voting is very exciting! Could you amend our blog’s name please. It was ‘Learn Polish with Biluś’ then Sam joined and so it is now: ‘Learn Polish with Sam and Biluś’



    6. Hi,

      This is exciting, I hope the best blog wins. Could you do us a small favor and please put the (vote) button next to our website? This English Thanks!

    7. I have been trying to vote for Kalinago English – such a lovely resource for teachers – but every time I try, the link directs me to vote for ‘a linguist goes to law school’. I’m sure that’s a great blog too, but can this be fixed? Many thanks.

      1. @Vicki Holett
        I am not quite sure whether I understand your issue. There is no direct voting link only a full list of all blogs in each category. You will find Kalinago English in the Language Teaching voting page. Please email me if you need any further help (marc at bab dot la).
