Our trip around the world in 80 Englishes continues and March is Japanese English month. So we’re all about spring and poetry!
We have a haiku competition going and the winning haiku will be given pride of place on the macmillandictionary.com home page!
Your haiku should answer the question: ‘What’s your English?’ and will be posted here on the blog.To brush up on your haiku-writing skills, check out this link.
So grab that keyboard and send us your haiku!Email this Post

My English is yours.
Is your English mine or ours?
Dear Macmillan Dictionary Team,
I keep enjoying & recommending this website to many colleagues. Not only in my homeland but also overseas.
I was very pleased to send my Haiku via Twitter.
Enjoy the competition!
It’s always fun to run a haiku competition.
My website gives a useful introductory overview of haiku which is highly praised by both Japanese as well as British and American writers of haiku.
all my best,
Alan, With Words
