I have always wanted to speak French, I started in school but after a year the school dropped the subject and I was left holding my dream and a couple of verbs, until my sister-in-law told me about a site called Livemocha – a FREE online community made up of language enthusiasts.
The community members help each other learn by providing exercise feedback, language practice via text, video or audio chat and culture tips, and giving much-needed encouragement. Livemocha offers courses in 38 languages from Arabic to Urdu and all the usual in between. You also have a chance to tutor people in your home language.
Good idea? Give it a try, you never know, you maybe fluent in no time.
