I’ve written a great deal about the benefits of learning a new language. Your brain loves to be challenged in new, fun, exciting ways and learning new languages MORE than fits the bill! An online resource was recently brought to my attention and I thought it was pretty outstanding, so I knew I’d have to share it with you.
Livemocha launched in 2007 and currently has over 9 million members. Livemocha is the world’s largest online language learning community, offering free and paid online courses in 38 languages. Members can take introductory courses on the site for free. Or, if members want to advance their skills they can purchase premium courses in English, French, Italian, German and Spanish–for $30 to $40 a month.
Courses include speaking and writing exercises that are reviewed by native speakers who provide helpful tips for improvement. Livemocha has found that reciprocal interaction with native speakers around the world is more engaging and motivating than a CD-ROM or book, and creates opportunities to put the language into practice. All of Livemocha’s premium courses include help from native speakers, world class learning content from leading educational publishers, and individual feedback from Livemocha Experts.
Livemocha committed to helping people everywhere in the world achieve fluency in a new language. Their goal is to make learning a language fun and affordable, by fusing traditional learning methods with online practice, and interaction with native language speakers from around the world. Livemocha delivers an unparalleled, learning experience that promises conversational fluency. It also is the perfect
tool to help individuals keep their minds sharp!
