Livemocha is an interesting web 2.0-based site which aims to connect language learning with native speakers internationally. Language learning is an obvious candidate for harnessing the power of web 2.0 practices given the centrality of communication as part of the learning process. 

The site is desribed as follows:

Social Language Learning - Online

  • Learn at your own pace with fun online language lessons
  • Connect with foreign language partners around the world

The "buddy" system also features in Second Life.
