Livemocha offers language courses in over 38 languages, all of which blend online instruction with practice and interaction with native speakers. The Livemocha methodology is structured around the Whole-Part-Whole learning model, which provides a proven structure for learners to observe, learn, and then practice new language concepts. Available to learners of all levels, Livemocha courses are based on the assumption that language is not merely an academic subject but rather a performing art – something that must be actively practiced in order to be mastered. Mimicry and memorization are two of the first steps of language learning, but to truly become conversant, to truly speak that language, a learner must actually try it out with a partner. Real conversational fluency takes good instruction, a dose of courage, and a lot of real-life practice.

Livemocha offers courses in the following languages: Arabic (modern standard) Bulgarian Catalan Croatian Czech Dutch English (American) Esperanto Estonian Farsi Finnish French German Greek Hebrew Hindi Hungarian Icelandic Indonesian Italian Japanese Korean Latvian Lithuanian Mandarin Chinese Norwegian (Bokmal) Polish Portuguese (Brazil) Portuguese (Portugal) Romanian Russian Spanish (Mexico) Serbian Slovak Swedish Turkish Ukrainian Urdu
