Live Mocha

Live Mocha is a social site that helps you learn foreign languages. Basically, you can earn points by correcting other people's writing or pronunciation in your native language. In exchange, someone else can help you learn to speak a new language.

Live Mocha explains: "Members all over the world can utilize their native language proficiency to teach and learn from other members of the community. Users have the option of practicing structured conversation exercises with a native speaker or submitting a writing or an audio sample of an exercise for a native speaker to edit or correct. These community-based interactive tools in Livemocha help build a strong engaged language community."

In addition to the interactive stuff, they also have structured lesson plans with support for English, Spanish, French, Hindi, German, and Mandarin Chinese. Nice.

I like Live Mocha, but if you want a language social network that has way more lessons with videos, more members, an online grammar and verb reference, a verb conjugator, and a dictionary, I would check out www.spanishdict.com. It's all Spanish or English, but it does it very well. Plus, you can put the whole site in Spanish if you go to www.spanishdict.com/es

Hi!

I invite you to check out our website as well :-)
www.hello-hello.com

Hello-Hello will be a FREE language learning website combined with a social networking where members will be able to:

- LEARN: do the lessons online anytime, anywhere

- TEACH: get help from native speakers and help other members to learn their native language

- COMMUNICATE: chat with people around the world to practice the language and make friends

The lessons were actually developed by ACTFL (The American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages) which assures their quality.

The site will be ready in a few days and people that pre-sign up before the launch will become VIP members so go ahead to www.hello-hello.com
