What language would you like to learn?


Transparent Language Online is now available FREE at the Plymouth Public Library.

Whether you’re starting at the very beginning with a new alphabet or you’re an intermediate learner looking to enhance your vocabulary and grammar knowledge, Transparent Language Online can help. Available for learning  110+ languages, plus English as a Second Language (ESL) materials for native speakers of 26+ languages, the program has something for every learner:

  • 110+ languages (and growing!):  Whether it's Spanish, French, Chinese, Arabic, or English, if they want it, we've (probably) got it.
  • Customized learning path: Placements tests let learners see recommended courses and lessons for their level, or they choose their own content.
  • Focus on a specific skill: Listening, speaking, reading, and writing are all part of the language puzzle. Learners can pick any skills-based learning activity, select their desired vocabulary, and instantly launch a custom lesson.
  • Learn on the go: At the library, at home, and everywhere in between, access to lessons is possible on almost any device, including full-feature mobile apps for iOS and Android™ tablets and phones.
