tool for learning a new foreign language

LiveMocha is a new online tool for learning a new foreign language, within a helpful network that addresses the issue of remote learning on two ends.

Centering around a social network, LiveMocha lets people help other users for the purpose of learning a new language. By providing this network alongside a set of tools that have proven useful for teaching new languages, Livemocha gives you multiple ways in which to learn whatever language you’d like. LiveMocha also has in-house tutors that will help you along the way. The lack of immersion is probably among the biggest reasons why many language-learning programs (including high school and college classes) don’t work.

So LiveMocha enables users to help each other with video chat tools and structured conversation exercises, and incentivizes them with competitions and a language buddy system for encouragement. You’re probably thinking that letting users earn money for a tutoring system would be a good way to incentivize users, too. Well, so does LiveMocha. The tutoring section of this network is in the works. LiveMocha’s approach of offering a new level of immersion, combined with its structured lesson tools is its point of differentiation. A similar tool is XLingo, which also combines networking with structured lessons for teaching foreign languages.
