Maybe you’re planning a trip out of the country. Maybe you’d like to learn the language your family once spoke in the old country. Maybe you’ve always wanted to follow La Boheme in the original Italian.

There are a lot of reasons to know at least a bit of another language. Whatever your reason, Redwood City residents have one single place to start: Pronunciator.  And the place to start Pronunciator is the Redwood City Library website.

Pronunciator is a fun and free way to learn a language.  All you need is a Redwood City Library card and a computer/tablet/smartphone.  If you’ve got those, you’ve got your choice of 87 different languages, from Afrikaans to Xhosa.  You can even learn your new language, in almost any of the other languages on Pronunciator.

It’s all online – at your pace – on your schedule.  If you’d like the human touch – Pronunciator also has live teaching sessions online.  And with the Pronunciator app, you can do a lesson at home on your computer, and pick up where you left off on your phone or tablet, while you’re on the road (just not while you’re actually driving, please).

Even if you’re just planning a trip north of the border, Pronunciator still has you covered with lessons in Canadian English, eh.
