We are going to introduce a new section on this blog called the “Web 2.0 Site of the Week where we will pick one web 2.0 site that we think will help Solopreneurs and Small Business owners take their business 2 the next LEVEL.
The first Web 2.0 Solopreneur Site of the Week is Livemocha.com Livemocha brings social media and learning another language together under one space.
Livemocha is an exciting e-learning Web 2.0 startup founded by a group of experienced and successful entrepreneurs based in the Seattle area. Livemocha addresses a $20 billion worldwide language learning market fueled by rapid globalization, immigration and travel. Livemocha is a first of its kind web based language learning solution integrating online instructional content with a global community of language learners. Livemocha is a venture funded company backed by Maveron, a leading Seattle based venture firm with tremendous consumer and e-learning expertise.
I have been using Livemocha.com to help me learn Spanish, French and Chinese. I have not mastered any of them yet but I am looking forward to the day I can travel on business to Madrid, Paris, and Hong Kong and speak the language without embarrassing myself.
Please comment on how your business would benefit from learning a second or even third language.
All the best
