Cool Tools Episode 49 Podcast: Livemocha

This podcast discusses how knowledge of a foreign language is important for librarians, and how Livemocha can help. Livemocha is a fun and interactive way to learn a new language using in-depth instruction, conversational tools and exercises with the help of native speakers, and motivation to continue.

Livemocha incorporates social networking into the learning process by allowing members to offer comments and advice on each student’s work both written and audio. You can practice with a native speaker in the Livemocha chat area. Livemocha is an entertaining and innovative way to learn a new language. For more information visit

As you may have heard, Livemocha is no longer in business and that link no longer works.
Also, site,, is an web and mobile language learning tool for learning languages in context. This is a good analog of Livemocha!
