This is fantastic, Bonnie! I was just thinking that I wanted to brush up on my Spanish speaking and this looks like an excellent resource. I also noticed that my local library is offering free access to Mango Languages, but it is nowhere as extensive as LiveMocha--thank you!

Hi Bonnie. You really did demonstrate a COOL tool (as opposed to an uncool toil :-). Like Janine, as I was watching the screencast I was thinking "time to try to re-learn some of my long-forgotten High School Spanish." Your overview of Livemocha's features was crystal clear. Great screencast!

Hi Bonnie -
I have looked at this application once before and never really got past the intro page. I will definitely have to take another look. Nice job.

This looks like an amazing tool, especially considering that access is free. I've tried it a bit, and really enjoyed helping a few people around the world with their English writing exercises. I'm sharing this tool with my family members who are studying foreign languages.

With a trip scheduled to Germany this summer I will definitely try LiveMocha to learn some German. I noticed there is a crash course for travel. Thanks for your presentation.

Thanks for sharing Bonnie. I too have been wanting to brush up on my Spanish and this gives me the flexibility of practicing without signing up for a class.

I am also going to show to my son who will be starting Spanish next year at High School.
