We are busily working on a new, fun, and updated blog page that we will be launching in the coming week or so. We’re excited to say that it will have a lot of entertaining and informational features that we hope will be helpful to you and become a resource for you.
One of the ongoing features that we will be incorporating into the blog will be a series of journals from language learners and teachers.
We all know that there are both struggles and successes in the language learning and teaching processes, and that sometimes the journey can be frustrating and lonely. We want the learners and teachers in our community to know that they are not alone!!
We want your stories!
Who’s going to be writing these Diary Entries? YOU! If you would like to start a Diary with us and share your successes, frustrations, and tips, we want to hear from you. We are looking for regular contributors to the Livemocha blog. Ideally we want to procure 4-5 language learners and 4-5 teachers who will contribute an entry once a month over the next six months.
Who do we want to hear from?
We’re looking for students, business people, travelers, anyone who is learning or teaching a language, regardless of age or target language. Your story matters and we want to hear it.
Diary stories will spur conversation
We expect the Diary feature to become a great forum for people to comment and chat about their own experiences. It will also be a fun place for other learners and teachers to follow the stories of people who are bending their brains around a new language, just like they are.
Get ‘em in!!
Please submit a letter of interest and a writing sample to email@example.com by next Wednesday, May 9th, 2012. (I’m not kidding, we’re launching the new blog tout de suite!)
Here are some specific topic ideas to get you started
- What success(es) did you have in your language learning experience this month?
- What failures?
- Did you commit an embarrassing or funny foible?
- Was there a trick you learned that helped you overcome a barrier?
- Did you have a breakthrough?
- What books, movies, other blogs, or resources are you finding helpful?
We’re so looking forward to seeing what you have to share!
