Experts agree that the best way to learn a language is to immerse yourself in conversation with native speakers, but that's not always geographically possible. Enter Mocha Live, a website that's like a marriage between Facebook and Berlitz. Online language lessons merge with a social networking component that allows your child to practice with native speakers in a fun and safe environment, a cool way to get her hooked on language. The bare bones learning options are free, but for $9.99 you can get three months of extra features, including audio, video and printable language lessons. There are over thirty languages to choose from, from Italian to Farsi. (livemocha.com, $9.99)
