New foreign language library database!

The Library now provides online access to Powerspeak, an online foreign language learning program that supplements the study of Spanish, French, German, Mandarin, and InglĂ©s (ESL). As noted by Choice:
"Powerspeak Languages is not a substitute for classroom learning, but it provides an excellent opportunity to dive into a language to prepare for a summer experience or a trip abroad. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower- and upper-level undergraduates, graduate students, professionals, and general audience." --CHOICE, January 2012

Powerspeak is available to anyone in the University Community via the Library's Databases A - Z page and related pages, or it can be accessed directly via this link: . For a tutorial on how to use, click here. If you have any questions, please contact your librarian liaison, the Database Coordinator, or the Research Center once the semester begins.
