  1. Add language chatrooms

    I suggest adding language chatrooms so that language learners can meet in public to have live discussions about the languages that they are learning (and to practice with native speakers live!). This would be an opportunity for members of the community to really get to know each other on a more personal level and it would be a lot friendlier with a "virtual café" sort of atmosphere:) You could specify chat rooms by language: French, German, Chinese etc.

    • Add a question/answer box underneath Tips

      While some of the tips are useful, questions arise related to the exercises. Some people have already used the tips section to ask questions about a particular exercise.

      Also, the Tips was a bit better with the previous design which didn't require flipping through the tips to find one in your default language.

        • Correct Korean 101 Lesson 1

          Korean 101 Lesson 1 has text that does not match what the speaker is saying. This makes it confusing for learners that may do not yet know conjugations/politeness levels to learn basic phrases.

          • Arabic lessons should read from right to left

            The letters of the Arabic alphabet look differently in the beginning, middle and end of the word. Learners should become used to not only reading from right to left the way the language naturally occurs, but also to how each letter looks in different parts of a word and sentence.

            This would of course be much easier to do with an alphabet lesson available and a tutorial that shows what each letter looks like at the beginning, middle, and end.

            • Create a Pending Reviews icon at top of site

              Please improve the Pending Reviews feature by creating an icon at the top of the site next to Pending Friend requests and Messages so I can instantly see how many unread pending reviews I have. Right now, a link to pending reviews is buried under the Share menu item. Reviewing submissions is a primary function of this site and needs to be visible on every page just like messages and friend requests.

              • Use pinyin & characters at the same time in Mandarin

                The Mandarin Chinese course is great on Livemocha, but it's hard to learn the pronunciation and the character at the same time if we have to choose which to show. Could there be an option where both are shown in the lessons? Thanks!

                • Improve Profile - Give Us Control of Layout

                  On my profile, it gives a member with a suggestion that I help them learn English. I do not like seeing this, particularly when it is the same member for days on end. I would like to remove this or at least move it. I would like it to change. I would like it to be related to the language I am studying.

                    • Hebrew lessons should read from right to left

                      All of the free Hebrew lessons have the Hebrew words written from left to right as in English, rather than from right to left. This is incredibly confusing to have it backwards, and is making me doubt the quality of the lessons for other languages I was interested in learning.

                      Also, it would probably be a good idea to add a Hebrew alphabet primer, as well as to add vowel points to all the lessons to make the pronunciation of new words easier.

                        We’re working to fix the problem with right-to-left languages such as Hebrew and Arabic displaying incorrectly. It’s a huge project so it might take a while, but we are definitely working on a solution. Thanks for your patience everyone!

                      • correct Farsi courses!!!!! it is unusuable

                        Hi,

                        I send a feedback: Farsi writting is completely wrong.
                        I found another user saying it on his website:

                        • Quality to Content

                          Voting the exercise, we mark until five stars Spelling, Grammar and Quality. I suggest instead of Quality (I do not understand what I must value in this case) to write Content. In some cases, the visitors write very boring and it is not interesting to read for volunteers’ teachers. We must stimulate the pupils to write sentences as interesting as possible.

                          • Adding translations with variables does not work, submission form does not recognise tags.

                            As I was asked by the service if I could provide translations for dutch for the website, I went on and tried it.
                            When I try to submit a translation, it tells me that I have forgot to use the needed tags in the translation. I know my way around programming and web development and I am pretty sure I did not forget the tags, so in other words, this checking feature is malfunctioning. I tried it in Opera (both Linux and Windows) and in Firefox (Windows).

                            As long as this is not fixed there is no way people can…
