  1. Hi!
    On your page I saw a link to Livemocha.
    As you may have heard, Livemocha is no longer in business and that link no longer works.
    Also, site, https://www.lingq.com/, is an web and mobile language learning tool for learning languages in context. This is a good analog of Livemocha!
