Did you know that the AV Language Library has some fun ways to study a new language too? Here they are:

  1. Come in to watch a foreign language film (all with subtitles)! Choose from Arabic, French, German, Hebrew, Mandarin & Japanese, Korean, Italian & Spanish, to Portuguese, Swedish, & Vietnamese, just to name a few.
  2. Use our fun & interactive EuroTalk software to practice your pronunciation.  Test your knowledge with quizzes and memory games, practice your dictation and comprehension, as well as speaking skills! Languages available: Arabic, English, French, German, Hebrew, Hindi, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Spanish & many more!
  3. With our Rosetta Stone software, you can hear, write and retain knowledge by matching words to images, complete sentences and phrases out loud, polish your pronunciation through emulation of native speakers, and speak confidently and develop your conversational abilities.
  4. Use the Language Player software to listen to and record your voice to a native speaker’s, slow down speech from a recording, and save your files onto your USB.  ** Note that the Language Player isn’t found anywhere else in the University except in the Self Study room, so come on in to practice your pronunciation!
  5. Learn the foreign language of your choice through links on the Language Blog – Grammar, Pronunciation, Vocabulary, Songs, Reading, & Listening.

So what are you waiting for? Come in and perfect your foreign language skills with the many materials in the AV Language Library! 🙂
