Jennie en France #2 in Top Language Learning Blogs 2010!

By   May 28, 2010 announced the winners of the Top 100 Language Blogs 2010 today and I was very surprised to see that Jennie en France was #2 in the Language Learning category and #3 in the overall top 100 blogs! Thank you to everyone who voted and a special thank you to Benny at (who ranked #1 and #2 in the same categories) for nominating me!  The competition was based on votes (50%) and Lexiophiles’ ranking criteria (50%), explained here.

Top 100 Language Blogs 2010

I’m leaving tomorrow for a 2 week trip through Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, and Germany. I will be collecting more realia in French, Dutch, German and perhaps even Luxembourgish and I hope to be able to update the blog and respond to e-mails while I’m gone, but that depends on my hotels’ internet connections. When I return in mid-June, I will be able to focus more on updating the language tutorials and listening podcast on a regular basis. The rest of the summer will be devoted to!

    Great job Jennie! So glad the two of us are side-by-side at the top 😀

  • Andromeda

    Yay! So glad your awesome site is getting the attention it deserves!

    If you want a lot of Luxembourgish realia, you might have to go outside of Lux Ville, I never really noticed the language around me until I went to a smaller town and all of a sudden it was like, BOOM, no one spoke French! Cool/scary, lol.

  • Betty C.

    Congratulations! You have definitely succeeded in transforming from an expat blog to a language learning blog. It's such an interesting subject.

    Congrats on (both) your rankings! If you stumble into any mistakes while traveling, at least post them with us on Up Your Bottom! We also have a few juicy French faux-pas as well…
