Improve your English by blogging with BBC

Added by Paul Scott on September 11, 2007 (Thank you very much for your information🙂 )

Hello everyone.

I work on the bbclearningenglish.com website. I am glad that you have found the blog area of our site and that you think it is a good idea.

I thought I would try to answer the questions above. For September and October we will not be running a competition.

I hope that we will be able to resume the blog competition during the month of October and announce a winner of the competition at the end of the month, ready for November.

You can find out what is happening with the competition by visiting the blog competition page, http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/learningenglish/communicate/blog/blog_competition.shtml

You may also like to join our Facebook group where we will also announce when the blog competition restarts.

Thank you for your interest in our site and good luck with your English.

*******************************************

Update: There will be no Blog Competition of BBC this August and September. If you are interested in their competition you’ll have to wait for a while ^^

*******************************************

Out of many interesting features it has, the BBC Learning English network is now holding A Blog Competition, here is the detail

Each month we will run a competition to select a new student blogger. The winning blogger will need to write a daily diary about their life on this site.

To enter you need to:

  • Answer three questions.
  • Write a paragraph explaining what you would blog about if you won.
  • Send your three answers and your paragraph to learningenglish@bbc.co.uk
  • Remember to include your name, country and contact telephone number and please put ‘blog competition’ in the subject line.

What does the blogger do?

  • Every week, Monday to Friday, for a month, the blogger will visit this site and write a blog.
  • The blogger will be able to write about most things but must stay within our blogging houserules.
  • The blogger may respond to comments sent in by visitors to the website.
  • The blogger will receive language guidance and writing ideas from the teacher blogger and can use this information within their blogs.

There are, of course, some rules you need to follow, please refer to them here.

I sure don’t have to say anything about the benefit of winning this competition and writing for them, you know it all😉 . Last time’s winner was an Vietnamese girl named Ha. She wrote a lot about our country with many beautiful pictures, you can read her writing from The Student blogger. Correspondingly, you can read many great comments and vocabulary from The Teacher blogger. Just one note, this is British English so some of the idioms and phrases may not apply to American English. However this is a great opportunity to improve your English skill🙂

  3. where are three questions, please? i dunno where they are….

  4. Hey Kid, I’m sorry not to inform that they said:

    There will be no August competition. We will be selecting one of our regular contributors to be our September blogger. Find out who that is at the end of the month.

    I’ll update my post🙂

  5. Excuse me, will the beginning of the competition be announced on the main page of the site? Or how can we know about it?

  6. I don’t know exactly whether this information will be on the main page. I just ran over that information by chance. A direct link to the Blog Competition is given directly in the post, you just have to click on it.

    Otherwise, from the main page of the Learning Network of BBC, click on “Communication” and then “Blog”, you will see all the information you’d like to know about it🙂
