  1. Add a "report mistake" button

    Sometimes I see minor translation or grammar mistakes in courses themselves. I do not think that using a Featured Tip is sufficient; there should also be a "Report Mistake" button wchich would be used solely for this purpose.

    • Include definite and indefinite articles for gendered nouns ("a" and "the")

      The exercises are lacking grammar rules, but the most important and preliminary (in German, for example) is a list of the masculine, feminine, or neuter definite articles when they occur in each phrase or sentence in the learning exercises. Also for indefinite and definite articles, the case - nominative, dative, accusative, genitive - and what prepositions take each case.

        • Allow us to quit the 'Active ...' courses

          If you don't want to finish a language course you just hit the 'quit course-button' and the course disappears from your profile page. This doesn't work with the 'Active ...' courses though.

          I enrolled in an 'Active..." course because I was curious but I didn't like it and now it just sits there on my profile page. It's really annoying me. Please allow us to delete 'Active ...' courses!

          • Add Farsi alphabets to chat window

            Hello
            There are many Farsi speakers and learners in Livemocha getting benefits and communicating through chatting still Farsi alphabets are not allowed for chatting. SOUNDS UNJUST!
            Please help us through this.
            it's also a good idea to include any language's keyboard available.

            • 1. Stop rewarding first to submit

              I see little value in rewarding "first to submit". It encourages short quick responses (often incorrect) with little teaching value. It would be better to reward "helpful" or "extremely helpful" in a meaningful way. Another possibility would be to have the submittor choose the best responses received to a subnission.

              • reading exercise

                The 4th step of each lesson - speaking/reading exercise - has always been a problem because, what the exercise asks me to read, usually, I didn't learn (the pronounce). So I always have to improvise it, and almost always it's wrong. - Of course, I never heard that before.
                So, I suggest you to change it to a text containing only words we learned on that lesson or at least words we already saw before. And also, put an example, recorded by a native, this way we can try to do the same and improve our pronunciation.

                Thank you
                Guilherme…

                • Bring back the option to delete submissions we do!

                  Well... up until the new profile page change (which was a very bad idea, by the way), it was possible for us to delete our submissions by going to "Profile --> My Submissions . Now with the new look, the option was deleted, and I wonder WHY?! Please bring it back. It makes me want not to do any.

                      • You should add another tab "incomplete submission" on review submission form.

                        There are lots of submissions (write and speak both) in active english and english too where the submissions are copied from format itself or left blank.It really is a waste of time for the person who is correcting the submission.Most of time people never even give "one star" so that others can realise that the work has been corrected.

                          Turkish characters get a virtual keyboard. Many people want to use the exercises.

                            Often time I will learn 90% of the flashcards very quickly, but 10% give me trouble. It would be sweet if we had the ability to flag a flashcard as "learned" so we're presented only those we need to continue to work on.

                            • improve the learning structure

                              I am currently learning Russian. However, the coursework is slow going because the teaching technique is not entirely helpful. First and foremost, every language that uses a different kind of alphabet should start with that. Russian uses the Cyrillic alphabet, which I know nothing about. Knowing what the letters are in respect to the Latin alphabet would be very helpful. The hardest part of my lessons are the reading, writing, and speaking sections. I can learn a word and pronounce it properly, but if I had to write that word, I have to go back to my notes to see…

                                  I am all for a diferenciation about American English and British English.

                                  I know I am not the only interested in a specif version of this language.

                                  In my case, I don't have any interest in American English and it's so different from BritEnglish, in ortography, pronunciation and so son.

                                  The most I try to add friends from UK to help me, I simply can't be "invisible" to speakers of the American version.

                                  They take points off of my exercices because I don't pronunciate with the american accent.

                                  • Speaking examples.

                                    The speaking exercises don't have examples. There should be a database with the texts read by native speakers, so we would have a model to follow for the speaking exercises. That way, helpers won't waste their time reading the same text for each individual, but just reading it once and they will only correct the wrong parts. Learners need examples.

                                      When I write out my review for peoples submissions, I take my time and try my best to help them to the best of my ability. This usually means that I'm not the first to respond, which is fine, but what upsets me is when I see that the person that beat me just wrote "good job." I don't do this for the tokens, otherwise I would apply to be a "teacher" here, but it's a bit crazy that, that person is awarded 30 tokens for giving no useful advice, if it continues many people may give up taking submissions…
