According to Wikipedia, learning something new (such as a foreign language or music), is one of the popular New Year’s resolutions in the United States. But what if you don’t have the time to enroll in a class and cannot afford a learning kit from Rosetta Stone? The good news is that the University of Cincinnati Libraries have a wonderful collection of books, media, and other resources for you to learn a new language. Our collections primarily support the language courses offered through the School of World Languages and Cultures and offer resources for learning Arabic, Chinese, Hebrew, Japanese, Russian, and Swahili. We also have vast collections in the areas of German Studies and Romance Languages and Literatures. Find links to Internet and library resources and tips for finding videos and DVDs in foreign languages and/or about countries or cultures at our Language Resources page.
So if you are making a New Year’s resolution this year and you commit to learning a language and/or facts about a country or culture, the University of Cinciinati Libraries will help you to achieve your goal! Good luck!
