On the search for the most popular language!

blw2013-logo3-midsize

Have you ever wondered what the most popular language is? It’s a recurring question we can rarely find an answer for. Is Portuguese more attractive than Spanish? Does Thai look more appealing than Hindi? How cool is Russian? So many beautiful languages out there but only one can be THE most popular. That’s why decided to run our bab.la Language World Cup 2013!

Loving Swedish. And Italian. And maybe Esperanto too.

We preselected 32 languages that will be put in pairs to face each other every day. The language that receives most votes gets through and is up to the next round. Until there is only one left: our World Cup Winner 2013!

How do I vote?

You can support for your favourite languages on the bab.la dictionaries or directly on the Language World Cup page. Spread the word around you to get the language you love go as far as possible and maybe even win! You can also support your languages via Facebook directly on the World Cup page. The official hastag is #blwc13

The contest is running from Monday 16th September on a daily basis until Thursday 17th October. We will then publish the results and the full ranking on the same page on bab.la

Stay tuned and come back every day to support your favourite languages!
