We would love to feature content from the members of our community. We ask that guest contributors submit articles that fall within certain criteria so that they align with the goals of Eurolinguiste as an educative resource.

  • Posts can be reviews of any of the following language learning materials: textbooks, podcasts, games, websites, or events. We also accept certain travel-related reviews. The review cannot be of your own product. Example: Our review of FluentU.
  • Posts can provide advice on certain aspects of language learning including time management, careers, study techniques, etc. If you opt to write an advice piece, the information included should be realistic and can be implemented into the readers’ language learning practices. If possible, include real life examples of how you yourself have applied the advice that you have given. Example: Cases | What This Word Means for Language Learners
  • Posts can provide advice on certain aspects of travel including city guides, restaurants, travel activities, budget travel, etc. If you opt to write a travel advice piece, the information included should be realistic and feasible for readers. If possible, include real life examples of how you yourself have applied the advice that you have given. Example: The House of Alexandre Dumas | Chateau Monte Cristo
