Get a New Lease on Languages with the New Transparent Language Online Posted by Transparent Language on May 11, 2015 in Company News, Product Announcements
Earlier this year, we announced the launch of the new Transparent Language Online for Libraries . We’re back in action and completely thrilled to announce that we’ve brought all of those new features to every Transparent Language Online account – for both our Education customers and independent learners! What features, you ask?
A Brand New Look: Don’t you just hate those people who somehow look better with age? Well, you’ll love that about Transparent Language Online’s brand new user interface. With the new design, you’ll spend less time trying to learn the system and more time actually learning the language!
The New Learning Path: When it comes to learning a language, sometimes you have a goal in mind and sometimes you have no clue where to begin. The new Learning Path in Transparent Language Online is here to help either way. Your Learning Path will make suggestions on where to begin, but you’re in control. Search through our extensive collection of lessons and vocabulary lists, then add and remove items so you can focus on what you want to learn.
Practice Activities: Love that you can dictate what you’re learning? It doesn’t stop there. In the new Transparent Language Online, you can also choose how you learn it. Communicating in another language requires a lot more than words and phrases – it requires skills. In the new Practice mode, you can choose from a suite of more than a dozen learning activities designed to build your listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills. Struggling with pronunciation, for example? Focus on speaking activities.
Support on More Platforms: You’re in control of the what and how, but we haven’t stopped there. The new Transparent Language Online works on any Internet-connected device, including tablets, letting you choose when and where you learn. And no, we’re not just talking about an app. You can actually access Transparent Language Online directly from a web browser on your iOS or Android™ tablet. Of course, you can learn offline too with the free companion Transparent Language mobile app, which will automatically sync your data when you next log in online.
More, Smarter Feedback: One of the challenges of using a self-guided program is tracking your progress. The assessments and Learned Words and Phrases Refresh system in Transparent Language Online have your back. You can track your own progress in the redesigned Learned Words and Phrases chart (located right on your Dashboard), which shows you how much you’ve learned. Not only is this visual reminder motivating, it also helps you retain what you’ve learned by turning items from “Fresh” to “Stale” over time. Haven’t reviewed a handful of vocabulary items in a while? The Learned Words and Phrases system will prompt you to do so, ensuring that the material stays fresh in your mind.
