Vote for LinguaTrek: Top 100 Language Lovers!

16 May 2012
Vote the Top 100 Language Learning Blogs 2012

Voting for the yearly contest Top 100 Language Lovers has begun and my blog, LinguaTrek, has once again been nominated in the category Top 100 Language Learning Blogs.

Last year, thanks to the "Wykop effect", LinguaTrek received the MOST votes out of any of the blogs!

But the votes only count for 50% of the overall score - the other half is the opinion of the contest organizers. A year ago, LinguaTrek was still pretty young, so it's completely understandable that we only got 12th place.

But this year, right after the publication of my FREE ebook - who knows what's possible! :-)

Can I count on your support? :-) It only takes a few seconds. Here is what you have to do:

  • Go to this page.
  • Find and select "LinguaTrek".
  • Click the "Vote" button at the bottom of the list.

While you're there, check out the other great blogs! It's really a great honor to have LinguaTrek on the list with them. :-)

Thanks for your help!

I was supposed to be there too... that's not fair!!!
the woman wrote to me and told me I was chosen! and I am not on the list, what gives? she told me I was supposed to write her an e-mail, but she never gave it to me! I wrote on her site, and answered her post - but she never reacted!
And I lost my chance to even compete. GREAT!

Forgetting is a very important part of learning! I talked about this in my ebook. You have to forget a word and be reminded of it several times before you will ultimately remember it. Anki helps with this! If you review your deck in Anki everyday it will show you a word just when you need to be reminded of it.

If you don't beleive me :-) -- here is an article from the blog of a relatively well-known polyglot talking about the same thing:

I hope that helps!

Best regards,

Nope! There are lots of different types of content. In my ebook, I discuss how to use the following: books, music, movies and television, video games, podcasts, language exchange or immersion. But there is really an infinite number of options! I recommend taking a look at the ebook. :-)

Yes, you can use websites as your content. There are even a number of interesting technologies that can help you if websites are your content. I discuss of a few of them in the ebook.

Hope that helps!

i have forgotten, what do you think about standard databases in this program? Is own database more helpful? Can you write something about plugins in this program? Do you recommend some?

Your own database is much more helpful. Because Anki (or any other SRS) isn't a complete solution. Context is the real teacher. I also talk about this in the ebook. :-)

Unfortunately, I don't use any Anki plugins (well, except for the Bibliobird one).

You've got my vote, too.

On first sight, we're doing quite well so far (the LinguaTrek is on top 5). Yeah, I know that our votes may contribute to only half of a final score, but that's a good beginning, isn't it?.

Well, the voting unfortunately is done in two days. :-) I don't think I did as good a job of promoting the contest this year as I did last year. I haven't even recorded a video!

But getting in the top five (as far as votes) ain't bad!

Thanks for your support!
