Foreign Language Video Contest: Call for Entries

Ciao, polyglots!

How many of you took the January language challenge and watched a foreign film without the English subtitles? I did. I gave Almodovar’s Todo Sobre Mi Madre a whirl. Or should I say it gave me a whirl? I hardly understood a word–and I thought that my Spanish was pretty good. Guess I know what language I’ll be polishing up this month.

Now on to the February language challenge! This will be fun. Multilingual Books is having a Foreign Language Video Contest. You submit the videos, and we’ll pick our favorites and post them on Multilingual Books. If your video is chosen, we’ll give you a free language product (and half of any online revenue generated by your video). Sound good?

So find that stunning travelogue, funny faux pas, or self-made language lesson and pop it in the mail. Come on, wow us!
