New Electronic Resource

The Library System is pleased to announce a new online language-learning product. Pronunciator offers self-paced courses for 80 different languages. Patrons can choose different levels of language mastery, from basic phrases for travel up to serious language study. And patrons are not restricted to using English as their first language—users can pick from 50 different languages to learn in, meaning that Pronunciator is also an excellent ESOL tool.
