As always, it will be hosted by the language portal and the Lexiophiles language blog. Once again we ask you, our fellow bloggers and language enthusiasts, to help us find the best 100 language blogs for 2010.

If you know a great blog related to languages you have come to the right place! The blogs you nominate can be about learning a language, tips on how to learn a language, language teaching, commenting on translations, presenting new language learning technologies or blogs by professional translators. There are no boundaries set as long as languages are involved. Our aim is to find the best language-loving bloggers on the web.

  1. Hi!

  2. Hi,

    Although it was nominated last year, I would like to recommend again my blog Algo más que traducir (, in which I talk about my experience as an English-to-Spanish translator and give some tips for translators.

    I am looking forward for the voting phase!


  3. Time is getting close… this week I started adding the language blogs I read to blogline. Below is my list of general language learning blogs:

    I realise that most will be on your list already, but if even one isn’t, then it will have been worth adding these here.

    (I’m in the process of adding more… but as time is getting close, these will have to do).

  4. Hi. I’ll like to nominate the following blogs (mainly to do with Korean)

    1. – an excellent site offering free podcasts/lessons
    2. – blog on learning language
    3. – learning both Japanese and Korean
    4. – korean learner
    5. – blog on Korean

  5. Hi,

    I would like to nominate

    Its written by a high school Spanish teacher in a NYC public school. Very inspiring and helpful to teachers!

  6. Hello Priscilla,

    Thanks for your mail. We are delighted to be nominated for this edition 2010.

    And in french now : Bravo pour votre initiative. C’est chaque année bien intéressant.


  7. @ Vincent: Merci beaucoup!

    Thank you all for taking some time to nominate blogs for our competition. Today is the last day for nominations. The voting starts tomorrow. Good luck!! 🙂

  8. I’d like to nominate a publisher’s blog for a change.

    The Oxford University Press English Language Teaching Global Blog ( may be relatively new, but it already has a lot of useful resources, hints and tips, teaching methodologies and (my personal favourite) interviews with top OUP authors.

    It’s not there for promotion, it seems to genuinely want to offer people something they can take away and use. OUP are even inviting people already in the blogosphere, as well as aspiring bloggers/writers, to write guest articles for them. And there are rumours of an upcoming writing competition. This could be a great opportunity to create a name for yourself if you’re wondering how to tap into the world of ELT/EFL blogging.

    This is definitely one blog I’ll be following closely as it expands and develops over the coming months!

  9. Now that the nominations are closed, I’d like to start voting. But where are the voting lists?

  10. Hi,

    I would like to present this new blog:

    It’ s made for spanish mothertongue who want to learn italian!

    I know it’s maybe too late for this year for add it to your list, however I wanted to present it and maybe it will be part of next year’s list!

  11. Handy list Thx.
    Quite useful for being in touch with other language service professionals.


  12. Cool competition.
    What a shame I haven’t heard about this earlier.

    Otherwise I would’ve founded a fifth category “language entertainment” or “lingual failures” with 😉

    Cheers, looking forward to next year’s edition.

  13. I think this one because it just highlights the importance of accurate language translation. If you are going to translate something from one language to anther don’t depend on unreliable sources. For work we use a translation agency to help us communicate with all our oversees clients and they product accurate document translation for various languages.
