Transparent Language Online.

The Clarion Public Library has a new online resource available to all patrons: Transparent Language Online. Designed to make learning a new language fast as well as easy, Transparent Language uses technology and learning research to make learning fun and easy. Over 100 languages are offered, from Afrikaans to Zulu, and more being added on a regular basis. Languages with multiple dialects are also represented where possible. Transparent Language Online also has a mobile app on iOS and Android that will sync up with your online progress to keep learning on the go. Transparent Language has been used by diplomats going to a new country and in training military translators prior to deployment. Whether you need to brush up on that High School Spanish or need an ESL resource, Transparent Language Online has you covered.
