Has anyone used Livemocha for language instruction? Groupon is having a deal where you can get 2 years of instruction for only $29. It is usually $199.90. I was wondering if it is a program worth using? My girls are 7 and 9 and we would do the Spanish.
Here are some things that are said about it:
"Courses in 38 languages incorporate a series of Internet-based multimedia lessons in four levels of fluency. Role-playing exercises give students conversational experience without making them fight the same three Cactuars over and over again."
"One of Time magazine’s 50 Best Websites 2010, Livemocha opens the door to multilingual mastery thanks to comprehensive lessons and a helpful online community that has grown to more than 15 million people. Through programs such as the popular Active course, students work to build conversational fluency in one of 38 languages, from French to Urdu. Courses include proven educational content from publishers such as HarperCollins. Cultural notes and practice with native speakers help students grasp conversational subtleties, such as the difference between a Spanish trill and the mating call of a blue jay."
