Yolo County libraries offer Pronunciator

By From page A4 | January 31, 2014

The Yolo County Library is offering Pronunciator, an online language-learning system, free to all library patrons.

With 60 of the world’s most popular languages, and English as a Second Language courses in 50 languages, Pronunciator is focused on quickly building conversational skills through a suite of interactive online drills, scored quizzes and downloadable audio lessons and phrasebooks.

“We are delighted to be adding Pronunciator to the premium resources we offer our patrons,” Yolo County Librarian Patty Wong said in announcing the addition. “There are many reasons a person learns a language — for work, travel, school or simply personal enrichment — and Pronunciator has something for everyone.”

The Pronunciator online language-learning system was donated by Robert Savage in memory of Davis resident James Steichel, and will be available through June.

Residents are invited to stop by any branch of the Yolo County Library for an introduction to Pronunciator, or to access the program online at www.yolocountylibrary.org. Davis branches are at 315 E. 14th St. and at Montgomery Elementary School, 1441 Danbury St. in South Davis.
