I would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to everybody who has contributed in one (or more) of the many ways: by writing a guest post, by commenting, or by joining us on Twitter or on the What’s your English? Facebook page.

The Macmillan Dictionary team look forward to more of the same in 2011 🙂
