Have you always wanted to learn a language? Are you trying to learn one now? If so, a new online interactive language learning resource is now available through the Orange Beach Public Library.
The world’s largest online language learning community, Livemocha offers free online language courses in 38 languages including Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, and Mandarin to millions of members from over 190 countries. It also offers extensive ESL (English as a Second Language) support. Because an important part of Livemocha's offering for adults is access to assistance from native speakers in every language, Livemocha also supports a separate platform for children with the same high-quality language learning materials without the social networking component.
It’s easy to use. Just choose the adult or juvenile Livemocha site, enter a valid Orange Beach library card number, choose a language from the drop-down menu and register with an email address and password to log in. It’s accessible anywhere, 24/7. You can find it using the links above or by clicking the Research tab.
