Ever since the October Language Challenge ended, many of you have been asking us when the next language challenge will be and we can finally tell you!  We will soon be starting our New Year’s Language Challenge!

Many people like making New Year’s Resolutions! Many of the common ones involve: to work out more, to lose weight, to volunteer to help others more, to give up eating junk food etc.

These are all great resolutions but we want to you to add an important one to your list:to learn a new language!

Maybe you want to do it for  work, maybe you want to be able to talk to that cute guy/girl in his/her native tongue, maybe you want to be able to impress your in-laws, maybe you want to travel to a new country, or maybe you have just always had an interest in learning a new language!

What ever the reason is, we’re giving you  a great opportunity to get it done!  We’re not going to give away all the details yet, but registration starts on January 1st! Stay tuned for more details on the:

Valentine’s Day has come and gone.  Chocolate was eaten, dances were danced, and  “I love you” was said in many different languages.

Although we are sad Valentine’s Day is gone, we are, however, very excited to announce the three winners of our Valentine’s Day Notebook Contest.  All contest winners will be receiving 20 USD of italki language lesson credits (200 ITC).

There were many great entries, but here were the three that really surprised us for their originality.  Check them out below.
