Feedback from Native Speakers
Every lesson includes four opportunities for you to get feedback from native speakers. You can submit the following exercises to native speakers: Read/Write, Read/Speak, Listen/Write, and Listen/Speak.
You will get better feedback, more quickly with star-ratings from native-speakers in the community and detailed reviews from Language Experts.
Language Partners on Livemocha
You will find a list of your closest friends in the Language Partners tab of your profile. From there, you can filter their work from that of the community at large, rate and review their exercises, and exchange messages.
If you do not yet see your friends fro the old site, don’t worry, we’re still keeping track of those connections!
Earn or buy access to anything on Livemocha
You can unlock everything–lessons, feedback, etc–on Livemocha using either Points (which you earn) or Beans (which you buy).
You can redeem your earned points for lessons, feedback, activities, and more. You earn points by completing learning activities (for example, you will earn points each time you answer a question) and by helping others. The more you learn and the more helpful you are, the more points you will earn!
When you earn points, you’ll hear a “cha-ching!” sound and will see more points being added to your stack in the top left corner of every page.
Anytime you would like to unlock a new activity or piece of content, you will see the price in both beans (which you buy) and points (which you earn). Click on the points icon to unlock something using your points.
If you don’t have time to earn the points you need to get what you want, you can always buy Beans, which will give you immediate access to anything on Livemocha.
Click on the beans to use your beans to unlock the item you want. If you do not have enough beans to purchase something, a modal will pop up that will allow you to buy bundles of beans. Once you have bought a bundle of beans, you can use them to purchase anything on the site.
Livemocha’s award-winning learning experience – re-imagined to be more effective and more fun
Our Whole-Part-Whole method has been proven to help people learn languages faster – and make what you’ve learned stick longer.
You’ll learn by observing a new concept, breaking it down to learn how it works, and then trying it out for yourself.
All lessons are made up of 10 activities:
Watch or listen to an example of the new concept, then answer a few questions to gauge your comprehension.
Learn new vocabulary words using a series of flashcards.
Learn new language concepts (grammar, culture tips, etc) using a series of flashcards. The flashcards will include language rules, example, etc.
Practice new vocabulary and usage concepts with interactive questions. You can try them out as many times as you like.
Use what you’ve learned! Read a prompt and write a response. Then submit your work to native speakers and Language Experts for help and feedback.

High Quality Feedback – Guaranteed
You’ll get better feedback, more quickly with the combination of star-ratings from native speakers in the community and detailed reviews from Language Experts.
At the end of your Read/Write, Read/Speak, Listen/Write, Listen/Speak sections, you will be given three ways to ask for feedback from the community.
Ratings from the Community
Find out how your skills measure up by getting rated by native speakers in the Livemocha community. You’ll get 1 to 5 stars in each skill category (spelling, grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, etc). You can see your specific ratings from each person, as well as your aggregate score to see where you’re doing well and where you still need work.
Written comments and ratings from native speakers in the community
If you would like to get detail feedback from a native speaker of your target language, you can ask the community to give you a star rating as well as written feedback on your work.
Reviews from Language Experts
When you submit your work to a Language Expert, you are guaranteed to get accurate, high quality instruction. Language Experts are skilled members of the Livemocha community, selected for their expertise and proven ability to provide exceptional feedback.

Fast and Easy Ways to Help Others
You can help others learn your language (and earn points!) quickly and easily by providing star ratings for their exercises. You can rate any exercise in your native language (i.e. if you are an English speaker, you can rate any English exercise). By giving a star rating for each skill level, you are helping the learner see where they’ve done well and where they can use improvement.
Rubric to Guide You
Use the rubric to guide your decisions about how many stars to give for each exercise. It’s a fast, simple way to help someone out.
Leaving Text and Audio Comments
Currently, we only allow Language Experts to provide text and audio comments, in order to guarantee high quality comments for every exercise.
