Livemocha is a website catering to online students who would like to learn a new language online for free. It offers a wide range of foreign languages to teach, even Asian languages like Nihonggo. But for this season, we would pinpoint Livemocha’s ability to teach you Spanish.
Livemocha prides itself in a teaching method that is at par with the Rosetta Stone. Only they offer the lessons for free. It also takes pride in having native Spanish speakers teach you proper diction and grammar.
As it is with other language tutorials online, you receive education based on your learning curve: beginner and intermediate. The beginner level would focus on learning new words and dividing them further into the Spanish version of the 7 Figures of Speech as well as basic greetings and phrases. The intermediate level, on the other hand, would help you apply your knowledge so far of the Spanish language by applying it in conversations.
Knowing that some of the exotic tropical destinations are located in Latin America, Livemocha also offers Spanish lessons to those who intend to travel to Spanish-speaking countries.
Apart from enjoying the beaches, some Spanish learners go to these places for business.
Language barriers affect travel arrangements due to misunderstandings. The same language barriers block you from sealing business deals. Livemocha helps break these barriers by teaching you Spanish in consideration of the needs associated with learning it.
Conversational proficiency is of utmost importance in Livemocha. This explains why the website encourages getting in touch with online tutors that would harness your Spanish communication skills. Not only are you exposed to someone who is a native speaker, you also get additional tips and pointers to go with Spanish cultural tips for tourists.
Social media connectivity helps in keeping you connected to your Spanish lessons. Livemocha has its own Spanish learning community. By using Google translator you can check for certain words that are not clear to you. Following them on Twitter keeps you abreast of the latest grammar tips you can receive real time from Livemocha.
Becoming a fan of Livemocha on Facebook gives you time to learn new words and phrases every day as you see them on your timeline. And subscribing to their YouTube channel would give you an audio-visual treat of learning Spanish by associating images with words with consideration to teaching you the phonetic aspect of learning Spanish.
Once enrolled into the course, LiveMocha provides the learning materials – text, audio and video of more of the words and phrases in Spanish that you can learn. Record yourself reading aloud a paragraph of Spanish text for feedback purposes from the native speakers themselves.
LiveMocha still exists today. The website is still up teaching various languages. But you have to log in to view the current batch of lessons. Also, they teach Spanish and other languages using their own app. Just download through Google Play or Apple and start learning a new language.
