Quiero estudiar espanol para apprender lo hablar. I want to study Spanish so that I can learn to speak it. Luckily for me, MCPL has many resources that help me do just that. During my daily commute to work, I've been listening to Pimsleur audio CD’s.
Have you ever been interested in learning other languages? Are you planning to travel to other countries? Host a foreign exchange student? Learning even the basics can be hard, but there is now an easier way to learn, more convenient than returning to the classroom.
I always wanted to learn a third language. For some reason, I’ve always wanted to travel to Spain and to be able to converse in Spanish. I am taking an evening class, and I’m really enjoying it.
I feel like I am learning a lot. I’m also practicing my Spanish with the library’s Research Databases using Mango Languages. Mango’s online language focuses on teaching actual conversation skills. It’s like having your very own personal instructor.
With the tragedies happening in Japan, I wonder if you know that you can learn how to speak Japanese through the Japanese Language Club at our Antioch Branch. Each session covers conversational phrases and reading. Often textbooks are based on what is being written or what "should" be said. This group will focus on what actually "is" said! Join us, whether you are a complete beginner or advanced speaker. The effects of the earthquake and the subsequent tragedies are going to be felt for a long time.
How many languages do you think are spoken in our communities? I counted about 20 so far. English Language Learners are the fastest growing population in public schools across the United States. This growth of culturally and linguistically diverse students provides an opportunity for us to interact with families who have different life experiences, world views, cultures, and languages.

Are you scratching your head and wondering, "What in the world is this crazy librarian is asking?" Then, you’re right along with me, because languages aren’t my strong point. I’m an English major, and sadly sometimes, I can barely speak that—makes me ponder why they let me call myself an English major at all, but I digress.
