Livemocha

World Language students at Pewaukee High School and Asa Clark Middle School have been using Livemocha, an online language learning tool. Livemocha is an interactive learning community offering courses in 35 languages.

Livemocha's website states: "Global interest in language learning is exploding. Trade, immigration and travel are conducted across countries and continents like never before in human history. The result is a powerful desire shared by people around the world to communicate with one another and understand different cultures. Not surprisingly, the size of the language learning market is estimated at a staggering $50 billion USD. In a world  hungry for new language skills, and increasing broadband Internet access and VOIP adoption, our mission is to provide a more accessible, affordable, and engaging way to learn a language. Livemocha allows people around the world to help each other with language learning, and provides our community with opportunities to learn and practice new languages together."

The Pewaukee School District is a 1:1 laptop system (grades 7-12). Livemocha is being piloted in all beginning level language courses. The overall response to this interactive tool is very positive.  Students work at their own pace on activities to build listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills, as well as to learn new vocabulary and grammatical structures.
