Flexible learning path: Follow our plan or blaze your own trail. We give each learner a starting point, but allow them to choose what they'd like to learn.
Enhanced compatibility: Optimized for touchscreen use on Android™ tablets and iPads, Transparent Language Online works on virtually any Internet-connected device or computer.
Smart insight and review: The learned words and phrases chart tells users how much they've learned and when it's time to review.
Practice activities: Want to learn a little bit of the language without taking a course? Practice listening, reading, speaking, and writing skills with learning material from any lesson using over a dozen challenging activities.
Core skill-building activities: Give your language learners the most robust program that builds all four core skills; listening, speaking, reading, and writing.
Typing activities: Never typed in a foreign language before? No problem! Beginners start with Easy Typing to input foreign characters. Intermediate learners can advance to type with the included fully-mapped native keyboard.

Please give us time to gather these items and the library will let you know when they are ready for pick up.
Please do not use this service if you are not feeling well.
This is an unprecedented event and be patient as this decision was not an easy one knowing that this means a temporary loss of access to in-person learning services and gathering space the library is known for providing to our community.
We will continue to update information here on our website and our Facebook page and we look forward to welcoming everyone back into the buildings when this virus allows our community to reconvene and rebuild a sense of normalcy.
