Japanese Wins the 2014 World Cup of Languages Posted by on Jul 14, 2014 in Events, Language Learning

The day we’ve all be waiting for has come, and I have to say I’m a little sad it’s here. It’s been a pleasure to play along with you all, and I hope you’ve had fun learning a new language during our 2014 World Cup of Languages! You all deserve a pat on the back for your effort, and I hope you’ll continue learning and exploring your language(s) of interest!

But enough with the sentimental stuff. Ladies and gents, we have a winner. With an impressive win of 2,832 points to 1,170, Japanese has defeated Italian! Totaling more than 325 total hours learned throughout the entire competition, Japanese was among the top contenders all along, and didn’t let us down for a second in the finals. I think we can all agree that they deserved the win.


Congratulations, Japanese learners and fans! We randomly selected a winner among the pool of entrants who selected Japanese as their winning language, and Tim Groth is the lucky winner of a free 6-month subscription to Transparent Language Online and a free Transparent Connect tutoring session! Tim, you will be contacted by e-mail shortly with the details. To the rest of you, be sure to check your inboxes later today for a little surprise, as my way of saying thanks for playing along! Until next time: happy language learning!

    yaaay! it’s the first time I’m winning something as part of a team.
    I just wish I knew the others “nakama” (teammates), but anyway this was a great boost in my learning which was pretty much stalling before the championship.

    thank you very much, meaghan & co., for making the world cup of languages happen. (y)

    Congrats Japanese! And good job to everyone who played!
