Over 14 million questions were answered in 7 days in last year's competition. Who knows what the final result will be this time around with an extra 3 days to play with!
Like last year, I will be writing regular updates on the Language Perfect World Championships home page throughout the competition so keep your eyes peeled as you may get a mention!
I will also be using social media to promote the competition and would encourage you to post your thoughts and achievements on to the championship blog using the email firstname.lastname@example.org. Feel free to send multimedia attachments so they will be embedded automatically for you as if by magic! You can also leave comments on the Language Perfect Facebook page and tweet using the hashtag #lpwc.
The Language Perfect team has now developed an iPad app for those who want to take part in the Championships on the move too!
I was lucky enough to attend the official launch dinner in Perth, the host city for this year's competition in March, footage of which you can see here. You'll spot me right at the end on the right ;-)
