There have been lots of questions so far about the new Livemocha experience – and we’re so thrilled you guys are asking! We’re steadily adding new features and lessons that will engage and support your language journey and we can’t wait to share.
Coming soon to the new Livemocha
You will be able to communicate with native speakers in both guided audio chats and open-ended text conversations with your language exchange partners.
How does it work?
- You can practice native speakers in a back and fourth audio dialogue based on a short conversation guide in your lesson
- You can elect to be a helper, which means learners will be able to invite you to be a chat partner and you can help someone else learn your native language!
- You can participate in Language Exchange from the very beginning! Introductory conversations may be simple exchanges like “hello, what is your name,” and more advanced conversations might cover topics like dreams, movies or other topics related to your lesson.
Similar to chat feature on the current Livemocha, this is a simple chat/message experience that allows you to communicate with your language partners. You can use this to practice, arrange times to talk, etc.
Never fear! Your Friends are coming with you!
We will be migrating your established relationships to the new Livemocha. This means that once both parties have moved over to the new Livemocha, you will be able to find each other to continue you language learning together. And if you already have an account, don’t worry – once this feature is live, we’ll make sure you can find your friends.
You’ll also be able to make new connections as you move through your language learning journey. For example, when you help someone learn your native language, if they think your feedback was helpful and want you to help them more, they can invite you to be a language partner. If you accept, you will both find each other in your language partner lists.
Soon, you’ll be able to add your customized profile picture – just like on the old Livemocha.
(But don’t worry – everything will go through a speedy screening process so nothing will be posted that isn’t appropriate for all eyes!)
A Friendly Reminder
We’re so excited about the new version of Livemocha, and we hope you are too. And we want to reassure you that you’ll still be able to use the features you know and love. We are in the process of moving over entirely to the new version of Livemocha, and the old Livemocha will not always be available. We hope you will be patient as we continue to improve and add new features every single week. We appreciate your feedback and continued support, and would love to hear from you as you get used to the new site.
Thanks so much, The Livemocha Team
