This is a guide to languages resources, including learning websites and apps, reference works, online databases and journals, and books available at Nash Library.

This guide is organized in tabs according to source type. The language websites and apps tab contains links to free lessons and interactive activities online. The References tab includes links to print reference sources. The Journal Articles tab includes links to databases with articles in foreign languages as well as databases and journals with articles on languages and language learning. The Books tab explains how to find books about languages and foreign-language materials in the library.

Learning a language requires mastering multiple skills (vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar, writing, etiquette), and there is no single book or website that will teach you everything you need to know. Try out different ways of studying and find out what works best for you. There are many free websites, forums, and dictionaries online for specific languages; we haven't tried to organize them all here as there would be far too many, but they are easy to find through a simple web search.

Using Library Search Tools

This is a quick introduction to the library's search tools. They are always located in the dark green ribbon at the top of library pages.
