Shrewsbury - The Shrewsbury Public Library, in partnership with Recorded Books of Maryland, has announced that new language learning software has been made available to patrons. Transparent Language Library Edition is a new product that allows users to learn a new language in their own home, at their own speed. Used by the U.S. military to prepare troops for rapid deployment and by over 10,000 educational institutions, Transparent Language is a highly regarded and proven system for learning a language.

Patrons can now check out a language learning course for home use. Since each course is held entirely on a single compact USB drive, launching the program is as simple as plugging it in. Transparent tracks each user's progress individually, so checking out the device again in the future means users don't have to start over.

The program even keeps a separate profile for each family member, so everyone can participate at his/her own pace.

At this time, the library can provide Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Swedish programs.

For more information, visit www.Shrewsbury-ma.gov/library or the library itself.
