WLT’s 2017 Thai Language Lovers Giveaway…
Wow, was that ever a tough competition. I swear, it gets harder each year – but so worthwhile (fun too). In the Top 25 Language Blogs of 2017, WLT came 15th. I’m soooo chuffed! Did you see the competition in the blog section? Wowza. The fabulous Universe Of Memory deservedly came first – it’s a fantastic blog (I’m a fan).
In the Top 100 Language Lovers 2017 section, where they trim 400 entries down to 100, WLT made it to 30th place. Not too shabby! I’m one happy camper this year.
And even more good news, Wannaporn Muangkham’s Learn Thai with พร came seventh in the Top 25 Language Facebook Pages 2017 section and 46th in the Top 100 Language Lovers 2017 section. Congrats Wannaporn! It’s totally well deserved. I just love your stuff 🙂

Via the TLL competition, in past years I discovered The iceberg project, Learn Italian with Lucrezia, Universe Of Memory and too many more to mention here. My new find this year is the German blog Sprachheld, that promises to help save time learning languages. I’m game.
