Library Puts Languages at Your Fingertips

By Tina Beis

Planning to study abroad? Collaborating with international researchers?  Just want to brush up on your language skills outside of the classroom? The Library has you covered with Transparent Language Online.

Whether you’re starting at the very beginning with a new alphabet or you’re an intermediate learner looking to enhance your vocabulary and grammar knowledge, Transparent Language Online can help.  Available for learning 100+ languages, plus English as a Second Language (ESL) materials for native speakers of 26+ languages, Transparent Language Online provides an engaging experience for learners of all levels looking to build their listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills in a foreign language.

A customizable learning path allows you to choose what you want to learn, while an analytics system tracks your progress, periodically prompting you to review material that you haven’t seen in a while.

Transparent Language Online works on any Internet-connected device, so you can learn from your laptop, phone, or tablet. You can also download and install the App for iOS or Android and continue learning without Internet access.

To get started, access Transparent Language Online from the Library’s list of databases and click “sign up” to create your free personal account.
