Queens Library offers language-learning resources in 90+ languages via Transparent Language Online. Seasoned users and first-timers alike will be excited to hear that there’s a new Transparent Language Online in town, complete with a brand new interface, updated learning activities, better progress-tracking tools, more opportunities for personalization, expanded mobile access, and much more.

We're celebrating the new Transparent Language Online with the Worldwide Welcome Contest!  What could possibly make learning a new language with brand new, cutting edge technology even better? Prizes, of course! If you sign up for the contest and complete the Welcome Lesson, you will be entered to win a grand prize of one $500 Amazon gift card or a secondary prize of one of five $100 Amazon gift cards! Feeling ambitious? Every language in which you complete the Welcome Lesson counts as a raffle entry.

Whether you’re competitive or just curious about the world, pick up a few words in another language or two! You can learn at the library, at home, or on the go with your tablet. The system’s new Welcome Lesson will help you do just that. Taking as little as 5 minutes to complete, it’s the perfect introduction to a new language. Not too tech savvy? Don’t worry! It’s also the perfect introduction to the new system, with instructional overlays guiding you through the new navigation and activities.
