Library Adds Language-Learning Tool
The Pronunciator database, funded by the Friends of the Verona Public Library, is a language- learning service for all ages and literacy levels with 3,000 available courses. For example, a Spanish speaker can learn Chinese in a Spanish context, without having to go through English.
The database uses universal pictograms that are culture-neutral and language-neutral and allows speakers of any of 50 languages the ability to learn any of 60 languages in their native tongue. Pronunciator focuses on all aspects of language-learning: reading, writing, listening, speaking and spelling with up to 350 hours of downloadable audio lessons available. Each course has up to 10,000 exercises and 5,000 quizzes where you can track and measure your progress. All translations are done by humans who are native-speakers of the target languages with no machine translation used.
Pronunciator is helpful to new Americans, travelers, struggling language students and anyone from ages 3 and up who wants to learn a new language. Before your next trip abroad explore Pronunciator’s “Phrases for Tourists and Travelers” which provides 2,000 downloadable phrasebooks with nearly 1,500 key phrases, 60 hours of downloadable trip-prep audio lessons and a 32-page downloadable PDF phrasebook that you can take with you.
You can download up to 90 MP3 audio lessons per month and up to 10 e-Phrasebooks per month. The following month, the cap is lifted, and you can resume streaming or downloading.
All you need is your Verona Public Library card to open up a new world of languages that you can learn in the comfort of your home. For additional information, please call the Verona Public Library at 973-857-4848 or stop by the reference department to explore this new service.
