Here’s what you need to know.
The AmazingTalker’s Language Learning Blog has over 100,000 subscribers and attracts more than 600,000 monthly visits, and we’re always looking for more brilliant contributors to join our community.
If you have exceptional writing skills and would like to share your expertise with a large audience of English learners, Japanese learners, and Spanish learners, etc, we’d love to hear from you.
Please take some time to review this entire page — it should answer any question you have about what kind of content we’re looking for and how the submission process works.
The Bare Essentials for Every Post We Publish
Successful guest contributions are comprehensive, knowledgeable, and interesting posts that teach our readers something new about language learning. We’re also interested in publishing any topic that language learners and language tutors care about, which includes things like business usage, exam preparation, grammar, daily usage, pronunciation, and culture of any language, among other things.
We also look for a few things in everything we publish:
。Original ideas, new ways of thinkings, and high-quality writing. We will not republish anything that’s been published elsewhere.
。Article reflects the writing style/tone of the Langauge Learning Blog. We aim to be casual, yet helpful, and typically we stay away from buzzwords and jargon.
。Proper attribution of data, quotations, and outside content referenced in the article.
。No more than one link to your website in the body of the post.
The Different Post Types We Accept
We’ve conducted extensive studies to uncover which types of blog posts work — and which don’t. Here are some of our most successful blog post types:
。Vocabulary/Grammar Usage: There is a number of common mistakes and misunderstanding of the vocabulary or grammar that learners might have when they learn that language. You can summarise and consolidate those mistakes and use a new way to explain those concepts. These posts can include images, soundtrack or videos to better explain the concepts and the best practice of using those terms and grammar. Readers can easily understand and apply that knowledge in their daily life.
Examples of Terms/ Grammar Usage Posts:
。Ways of Learning / Resources Sharing: These posts give the beginners a preliminary idea of how to start learning a new language. When readers finish this type of post, they should be able to start to learn that language by themselves, easily adopt suggested learning methods and apply those resources during their learning process.
Examples of Ways of learning / Resources Sharing Posts:
。Exam Preparation Skills/Resources: These posts rely heavily on how familiar you are with the specific exams, including but not limited to IELTS, TOEFL, TOEIC, HKDSE, SAT, JLPT, TOPIK, DELE. Usually, they introduce the trends of the exams, the question types, and answers with comprehensive explanation. The contents should be comprehensive and easy to read and feature up-to-date data that are properly sourced.
Examples of Exam Preparation Skills/Resources Posts:
While we certainly publish posts from time to time that don’t fall into any of those categories, your post has the best chance of being accepted if it matches one of these formats. You can also select the topics that we suggested on our Available Topics Page to increase the chance of being accepted. Certainly, articles that are written in different languages on the same topics will be considered.
What We Won’t Accept
There are some things we simply can’t accept:
。Anything that’s been covered on our blog before. Please do a search of our site before submitting your articles.
。Anything that may be construed as a link-building scheme.
。Anything that’s too promotional for yourself, your company or organization.
。Anything that’s offensive or inaccurate.
。Anything that’s overly critical of individuals or companies — this is not a site to air grievances.
Why to become an Author
You can make money if your post is accepted! AmazingTalker values the author’s sweat and tears have gone into the post. Therefore, you will be offered 20 USD as a reward for every post we accept. (It will be transferred to your AmazingTalker account in the form of AT Credits.)
You can reach a wider range of audience who are learning that specific language. Tutors, who have written posts on AmazingTalker, can attract 40 – 50% more visits to your own tutor’s profile. It not only helps to build branding in Online Langauge Tutoring, but it also helps you to attract more potential students.

The Not-So-Fine Print
。Submissions must meet the AmazingTalker blogging team’s quality standards in order to get published.
。We cannot allow you to republish your guest post to your own blog, LinkedIn, Medium or on the web. The main reason is that the Google search engine has penalties towards duplicate content. If Google finds the same content on the web, it will not show your blog on Google search results and also hurt AmazingTalker website as a whole. It will eventually affect your blog and teacher profile exposure on the internet.
。The AmazingTalker blogging team reserves the right to edit and adapt your guest blog content as we see fit, and update it in the future for accuracy and comprehensiveness.
。AmazingTalker reserves the right to include calls-to-action to AmazingTalker content, including but not limited to email newsletters, ebooks, and other downloadable content.
