My experience with this site is that a native speaker sends you a message, saying "there seem to be a mistake in exercise 2" but they never mentioned how I should have written it, so I gave up trying to learn Spanish on it.
When you make mistakes, you want to know where you went wrong, right?

Hi Skaviva. That's a real shame that you weren't given constructive feedback. When I first joined, the site gave me some suggested people to add as contacts - native Bulgarian speakers who are trying to improve their English. I added some of these as friends and they are the ones who often provide feedback. They are doing a great job as they are really specific about my errors, particularly with pronunciation and which syllables should be stressed. I can also send them direct messages if I come across a problem during a lesson. A recent example is that one lesson used three different words for towels so I asked one of the people about this. Maybe it's a bit of pot luck if you get people who make an effort to help you properly.

Sadly it is closing on the 22 April..but is redirecting you to rosetta stone, which is a fee paying site..so good luck with that. There are other BG learning sites you can opt into, but i dont need them as my wife is Bulgarian, and i have enough to get by.
