Looking for a New Year’s Resolution?
This year, why not try your hand at learning a new language? Through Powerspeak Languages, available on the library’s materials search webpage, you can take free online lessons in Spanish, French, German, Mandarin, and Inglés (English as a Second Language). Lessons are user-friendly and contain both written and spoken material. You can even save your progress as you go, so keeping track of what lesson you’re on is a breeze. Take the plunge into a new language in 2015 and see how far it can take you.

With categories for students in high school, college, graduate school — there are even career-oriented and international tools — odds are there’s a resource available for everyone. Simply create a username and password, and then you’ll have access to everything from help for basic computer skills to scholarship searches, resume building and MCAT-prep courses.
