Learn English and other Languages with the Rosetta Stone Database!


Have you ever wanted to learn a new language but don’t have time to fit classes into your busy schedule? Language learning software is one alternative to classes but both these options can be expensive and inconsistent.

At the library, we know time and cost create barriers for those who want to learn languages and want to provide our users with an affordable and accessible tool to achieve their language learning goals. 

With this in mind, the Library is happy to announce our users can now access and use the award-winning language learning software Rosetta Stone (more help and information can be found here).

We previously subscribed to Mango Languages (another language learning application), but after comparing the two and considering the needs of our learners decided to switch to Rosetta Stone. We believe this application provides a more intuitive and well designed language learning experience. 

Be sure to keep an eye open for upcoming events and displays promoting this new and exciting resource in the Library and throughout the college!
