Whether you are traveling to a foreign country or have some free time this summer to learn a foreign language consider the Transparent Language Online resource, offered by the NCAR Library. This is a free online language learning application for the UCAR/NCAR/UCP community.
This product offers free remote access anytime from anywhere for over 80 languages. It provides personal progress tracking as well as audio pronunciation analysis featuring speed control. Lessons are presented in many formats and assessments are offered to measure applied learning. Your initial visit will require a one-time set-up process for your account.
If you are performing your initial account set-up remotely, you will need to use the “offsite access” link on the NCAR Library website to gain access, due to pre-arranged IP ranges. Once your account is established you will be able to go directly to the site. Mobile device access is also available. For your added convenience, there is now a direct link to the application from the UCAR Travel website - http://www.fin.ucar.edu/travel/relatedsites.htm.
