Lang 8

Lang 8 is a virtual journal for sharing. You write an entry in the language you are learning. Someone corrects it. You learn from it. First select the language you are learning and then you can write a journal entry.

This is my journal entry in Spanish.
Once you have written a journal entry you submit it. Other users will see it and can help you correct your grammar. You can also write private entries but people won't be able to see them to correct them.

You can also give back to your community by correcting their journal entries. Help other people learn your native language. 

You can show your correction by crossing out words that don't belong or adding missing words in bold. However you like to do it.

My German journal entry. I made a few mistakes. People corrected them. It helps me!

In the above picture is my journal entry that I wrote in German. People have corrected it. That's next to the check marks. Seeing the corrections shows me the mistakes that I didn't even know I was making. I'm glad I found this site.

If you love learning languages and you love journaling you will love Lang-8, which is a combination of both. Now remember, Lang-8 doesn't actually have lessons. It is just a journal where you write what you already know and submit it to native speakers. Then they correct it.

Have fun.
