Transparent Language Online

Transparent Language Online provides an effective and engaging experience for language learners looking to build their vocabulary, practice their listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills, and maintain what they learn. With over 110 languages to choose from, including English for speakers of over 30 languages, there is something for every learner. Best of all, with mobile apps for iOS and Android devices, you have the freedom to learn at home, in the library, or on the go.  

#Worried that you won’t be able to learn on your own?

A customizable Learning Path allows you to choose what you want to learn, while an integrated analytics system tracks your progress, periodically prompting you to review material that you haven’t seen in a while. It’s like having a built-in teacher there to keep you on track toward your language-learning goals.

Unfortunately, Transparent Language does not offer courses in Ancient Greek or Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics so reading the Rosetta Stone will require further study.  For assistance on resources for those languages please consult a librarian.
