Don't make me go back to Livejournal.

Does this website exist? I would like to be able to blog about my life in my target language and have native speakers make corrections, ask questions, etc. and do the same for people learning ESL. Livemocha seems like it should allow this but I can't figure out a way to do it. Does a site like this exist or do I need to utilize existing sites?

Language learning website using bilingual stories?

I came across a very neat online language learning tool a few weeks ago, but I didn't bookmark it and now I can't find it again. Basically it worked like this: you choose a preset text or story (I think they were mostly fables and fairy tales), your native language, and the foreign language you're trying to practice. Then it shows the text of the story with a few of your native words replaced with their foreign equivalents, letting you learn them in context. [more inside]

What are some good chinese movies to watch to help me learn Mandarin?

Conventional wisdom says that watching a lot of TV/Movies in another language helps with comprehension. What are some good movies/shows to help me with Mandarin? My current level is quite basic (2 semesters of college classes).
