Top 100 Language Lovers 2011 competition starts today – Nominate your favorite!

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.

The official hash tag is #tll11.

Stay tuned!

    Original, witty, and practical.

  2. Language Professionals: Patricia Lane’s outstanding Intercultural Zone. Inspirational, marketing basics applied to freelance / translators’ activity, latest trends in depth. In other words, bookmark ! English and French versions, native wonderful writing in both languages.

  3. Hello! I want to register my blog for the competitions! It’s a blog teaching some English points through stories, jokes etc for Iranian English learners…

  4. I’d like to nominate my web site and blog. It’s quite new and I’m trying hard to make it user-friendly and interesting, so I hope you’ll like it !

  5. I would like to nominate http://aidagda.wordpress.com/ (Blog: Aventuras de una traductora – intérprete en Madrid). Written in an apparently lighthearted style by a translator / interpreter, it is a breath of fresh air and provides very interesting and real-life information for those working in this trade.

  6. The TranslationGuy blog won 3rd place for the Professional Language blog category and 10th for best overall language blog last year, so I’m sure it would have automatically been nominated and accepted this year.

    However, I’d like to nominate the TranslationGuy’s Facebook fan page here – http://www.facebook.com/1.800.Translate. Also his Twitter account @translationguy. Great content ALWAYS!

  7. Hi!

    I would like to recommend the Educafrances’s facebook page!
    http://www.facebook.com/page.educafrances

    The page suggests every Monday and Thursday a short news report or an interactive animation along with an exercise to practice oral and written comprehension.
    It also releases interesting news articles from their website (www.educafrances.com) or articles about grammar, teaching languages and new technologies at school.

    Hope you’ll like it as much as is do!
