Duolingo is the most popular way to learn languages in the world. Best of all, it's 100% free!

Are there sites similar to Duolingo's old immersion feature?

I haven't been using Duolingo much since a lot of features have been taken away and my favorite was immersion. Anybody know a website where I can translate documents or pages in any language?

I translated a story I wrote into german and someone corrected the sentences for me. Not exactly immersion, but you might like it.

Really? So they do not get any new users? I guess that it is because of the spammers that posted there. Also, I noticed that it takes more and more time to get a correction.

I use hinative also. They are quite different. Lang-8 is for writing texts that are corrected by native speakers, while hinative is better for asking specific questions about languages and countries.

I use lingq.com as a form of immersion, although you don't "translate" to a new language, you can read authentic material, listen to records, and mark words you don't know.

I've used Google Translate a lot. You can paste in whole paragraphs for translation.

And it seems fairly reliable at French and German, in my experience..
