    • Suggested language partners

      I do not know how your search for language partners works. Is it not possible that one gets first people to choose from whose mother tongue is the language you are learning? i know that there are people out there who are learning actively my mother tongue and there mother tongue is the one I am learning. I have NEVER seen them as a suggested language partner. I get all kinds of people as suggested language partners and I do not know why . Their knowledge of the language I am learning is sometimes zero. Can you do something about…

      • I suggest you "Random Chat" option.

        I think it would be great if we had no need to search profiles or look around to chat with someone. There must be a "random chat" button and when we click on it there may be some options like "I want my chat partner to;
        -speak ... language (optional)
        -be at age between ...-... (optional)
        -be from country ... (optional)
        -be male/female (optional)

        ...

        -search- or -match me with someone-"

        Thank you for reading my idea. I hope you will consider it.

        • I SUGGEST YOU TO GET RID OF THE FACEBOOK CONNECTION

          I SUGGEST YOU TO GET RID OF THE FACEBOOK CONNECTION

          sooner or less, this is going to cost you users

          livemocha can stand for its own.

          it (was ?) based on people, helping other people out.. and to communicate to each other ..in different languages.. worldwide..

          if you are going to join, facebooks (and its goverments intention) to primarily earn informations..(to sell) and beeing on personal profit on money.. instead of beeing of help to people.... and therefore, profit.. on your own.. and earn money.. then you are going to loose users

          i really do admire livemocha..in its original intension.…

          • A "my notes" section like facebook - space to publish text freely!

            Facebook allows for users to publish "notes" that people can read and respond to.
            Today a friend on this site asked me to explain the difference between "not" and "no" in English.
            I invested a lot of time and energy into a thorough explanation. I wish I could post my answer so that others could benefit from it as well! You could allow people to rate the notes by helpfulness, and allow for users to search for these notes.

            • Sugiro que o Livemocha lance a quantidade de horas nos certificados de conclusão, para que ele seja aceito nos orgãos governamentais. na

              Sugiro que o Livemocha, também lance nos certificados de conclusão de seus cursos a "carga horária", para que os certificados sejam aceitos nas esferas governamentais; porque na prefeitura e no estado, por exemplo, exigem que no certificado esteja escrito a quantidade de horas do curso, senão o mesmo não é aceito para fins de evolução funcional e aumento de salário. Sei de tudo isso, porque minha esposa trabalha na Prefeitura de São Paulo, a qual é professora, ela pretende fazer um curso de inglês no Livemocha; no entanto, está desanimada por este motivo.
              Esta é minha sugestão.
              Obrigado!

                  • increase editor size

                    When reviewing other people's submissions it would be nice for the editor to be larger. There is too much word wrap and it can be difficult to review someone's submissions.

                    • Audio files would be easier to correct.

                      I miss a forward / backward / stop option when i listen the records of others. Ex.: I always have to listen the full record just to listen careful a mistake at the end. It would be easier to move in between the full record like we can do in movies and music programs.

                      • Prevent certain countries from contacting you (i.e. Senegal)

                        Only allow people from certain countries to contact you. Please make the site IP restricted and force the current country to be displayed (if allowed by the user). This would allow individual people to block the enormous amount of scam mails that are coming from certain places, and also help make the number of people that one can interact with on this site more manageable.

                            • Change page translations!

                              I have so far only check the German translation (I suppose it will be similar for other languages as well), but it is not very good. And I looked into the translation process, which is the cause for this problem:
                              All translations are extremely literal. people try to translate everything word by word. Which is correct sometimes, but often it is completely ridiculous! I like the process how you do this, but there has to be some control somewhere. There are lots of expressions used on your German version that would never be used on a real German webpage.

The review goes straight into Kanji without any romanji (bloody hard if you've never touched Japanese before, almost impossible). Also for the first writing test i ended up just cutting and pasting from my flashcards as again its pure Kanji, plus i didn't know how to say The man is tall but the boy is short etc as they were not on the cards and google translate is utterly useless for Japanese..Got to the speaking test, was…

                                    • Online members - Filter by native language

                                      Add a filter option that would allow one to see those who are online and who speak a specific language. For example, if I want to see those who are online who speak Slovakian, I would select, from a filter option - Slovakia, and only be presented with a list of people who are online who are native speakers of Slovakian.

                                      • Please add a "replied" next to messages we respond to. It's hard to keep track!

                                        There is a "Sent" folder but it's quite frustrating to have to skim through sent messages to make sure you replied, especially if you have shoddy memory and a lot of messages to respond to! A little icon on the side of the message after we have replied would be perfect

                                        • Pause button for audio playback needed.

                                          When I'm marking audio I want to take notes in the feedback box as I'm listening, but there is no pause button, so you have to start again. Also I had a really long audio reply in the language I'm learning the other day and wanted to pause to think half way through. Not possible - and I had to keep starting all over again.
