What I love about livemocha is the live feedback from native speakers. They can help you to identify sounds or errors that you make and tell you how to correctly say words or phrases. I have used both the free and the pay version of the site, and both are worthwhile. The advantage of paid membership is that you have access to video dialogues that you can listen to and then take quizzes about to see if you understood. The video quality is very good, and the situations are realistic.
I have used Livemocha to help me learn a second language. I am not yet proficient, but this site will really help you sharpen your language skills. You are able to contact native speakers of other languages. You help them with speaking, reading, writing, and listening. In turn, they will help you, as well. It is a great way to improve your second language skills. In addition, Livemocha serves as a social media source. If is great for learning a second language. Since it is serves as a form of social media, it is important that the educator use precautions that they would use with any social media.
