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.

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