Online Language Learning for your Teen (or maybe even you)

Is your teenager interested in improving her skills in speaking a foreign language but somehow can't get beyond the tedious classroom grammar lessons?  You might introduce her to Livemocha, an interactive online community that includes lessons, chat and motivational tools to keep you (or your older kid) on track in learning a language or two. It's aim is "to build confidence, comprehension and conversational skills."   Livemocha allows you to test your knowledge of a language, take online lessons and best of all, talk with native speakers.  It's focus seems to be on conversational skills, which is precisely what most foreign language lessons in school fail to provide.

You have to  be at least 13 years old to participate and no, it's not free.

The classroom experience felt forced and unpleasant, while the immersion experience felt relaxed and natural.Online is a good way to learn the basics of the foreign language, but immersing yourself in the language is the best way to become fluent. By traveling to a foreign language school/speaking country, you can not only practice speaking and understanding the language but you can also experience the culture, food, traditions and history of the area
