Throughout the 2014 italki World Cup Language Challenge, we are not only giving away prizes to the challengers but also users who cheer for the challengers!

Today we are presenting our winner of the Cheer Contest!

The winner of the 2014 italki World Cup Cheer Contest goes to Leigh Davis!

Leigh’s cheering video stood out from all the cheering videos and received the most views. We are impressed with Leigh’s enthusiasm and his singing ability! Don’t miss out his video, and you can also check out his story here.

Prize: We are going to reward Leigh 50 USD in italki credits to help him continue his Spanish learning and start learning Italian.

For all those who did not win this time, do not be discouraged, and don’t forget to check out the 2014 italki World Cup Language Challenge Official Page.

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.

The i love italki Facebook Competition

Congratulations to Giane Rosa, Artika Werian and Leyla Bittieva who were the winners in our “I Love italki” Facebook Competition. Each won 20 usd worth of language lessons on italki!

If you didn’t win this time, don’t worry, because we will be launching new competitions on a regular basis on our Facebook page. If you haven’t joined the Official italki Facebook page yet, make sure to do so now!

Our second Chatfest here in Shanghai was a success with people from at least 5 different countries joining us to practice languages and meet new people.  This time with a smaller group of people, there was more opportunity to get to know each other better and ample opportunities to speak foreign languages!  While Chinese and English were still the most popular, we also had people speaking or practicing Korean, Japanese, French, Spanish, German, and Italian.
