Transparent Language Online now available to Justice Patrons!


Justice Public Library District in partnership with RBdigital, is pleased to announce the availability of Transparent Language Online for Libraries, the most complete language-learning solution available anywhere. Transparent Language is a highly regarded and proven system providing the widest variety of high-quality learning material and seamless integration of real-life language use.

Through http://library.transparent.com/justiceil/ patrons of Justice Public Library District will have unlimited access to more than 100 online language courses, packed with pronunciation, speech, grammar, writing and vocabulary-building lessons. Patrons have the ability to write or speak their answers, practice pronunciation by slowing down the on-screen examples, and converse with native speakers though interactive videos. Transparent Language Online delivers all language-learning materials online with no additional media, such as CDs, flash drives, or DVDs. Patrons can learn on their own time, at their own pace in the library, in the comfort of their own home, or on the go with mobile apps for iOS and Android™ devices.

Please see your Justice Public Library librarian for more information on how to access this service!
