Everyone has a favorite social network. It’s either a ubiquitous Facebook, or straight-to-a-point Twitter, or down-to-business LinkedIn. Here’s another service that you might want to check out, LiveMocha. It’s an online language learning community offering free and paid lessons. The website is very popular and has over 9 million members from all over the world. What you can do there, is to find a native English speaker for language practice. You can ask questions about grammar, word usage, translation, take online tests or quizzes, and more importantly, work on your English speaking skills. Since practice makes perfect, you should use all resources you have to perfect the language, and this website offers just that.

Livemocha community is built on reciprocal approach wherein people work together to help each other learn the languages they want. When you create a profile on Livemocha, you need to specify what language you want to learn and what language(s) you speak fluently, and the website will match you with other members.

Livemocha has an online chat where you can practice your written English skills. If you don’t know a meaning of any word, you can use the built-in Phrase Translator to look it up. You can also work on your understanding and maintaining a conversation using the Conversation Scenarios. This will definitely come in handy when you’ll be taking tests or writing essays.  You can use a microphone and/or webcam to talk to your Livemocha partner and practice your conversational skills. If you want to work on pronunciation, you can record phrases, words or texts and submit a spoken exercise for review.

All basic features of Livemocha membership that you might need to work on your English skills - chat, messaging, and flashcards - are free.
