Winner of the British Council Blog of the Month Award

I am very pleased to share with you that I am the winner of this month’s British Council’s Teaching English blog award. This is the third time that I have been honoured with this award and I couldn’t be happier.

I’m sure most of my readers know about this prestigious organisation, but for those of my students who have just started learning English know that the British Council, funded by British government, can be considered UK’s international cultural body. It works in more than 100 countries worldwide and reaches 20 million people face to face and more than 652 million people online.
The goal of this blog has always been to provide my students with useful material to help them improve their learning skills and strategies, but as the blog grew into something bigger I have also aimed to provide teachers with hand-on practical ideas, tips, tricks and resources to use in their classes. Being a technology enthusiast, I have also tried to help teachers integrate technology in their teaching and I am pleased that the number of visitors to the blog has increased dramatically in the last years. Over 1 million hits this month.

This award is dedicated to my students who are the source of my inspiration. Here’s the link to the post that was chosen as representative of my blog.

Winner of the British Council Blog of the Month Award

Dear readers,

I’m thrilled to share with you that I am the winner of this month’s British Council’s Teaching English blog award for my post Six Amazing Websites that Make Your Writing Strongerwhich has received over 70,000 visits so far. Thank you very much!

When I was shortlisted this month, I was flattered my post was competing against posts from teachers I have been following for a long, long time (one of them, the widely admired Nik Peachy). I never thought I could win, but … here we are! As my father used to say: “Nothing worth having comes easy”.

I want to thank everybody who voted for Blog de Cristina and once again, allow me to dedicate this award to my students who are the reason Blog de Cristina exists and an endless source of inspiration.
