Because of the different learning styles in our community, the library subscribes to several online language learning programs: Mango, Rosetta Stone, and Transparent Language Online.  In addition, for those who wish to download audio lessons to a iPod or MP3 player, we have Pimsleur.

In collaboration with the Center for World Languages and Cultures, we have created a research guide, Language Learning Programs, in which we list the languages included and the special features offered for each program.

You must register to use the programs.  We have included that information on the tabs in the research guide for the individual programs.

The Center for World Languages and Cultures recommends you try the different programs to see which is right for you.

If you have any questions about the library's language learning subscriptions, please contact Peggy Keeran, Arts and Humanities Reference Librarian, at peggy.keeran@du.edu.

The language learning programs are only available for current DU faculty, staff, and students. If you are alumni, contact your local public library to inquire if they offer any online language learning programs, or if they have audio CDs for the language you wish to learn.  If they don't have either, they may be able to borrow audio CDs via Interlibrary Loan for you for the language you wish to learn.
