Learning a Second Language
Summer can be a great time to kick back and take on a personal enrichment project at a more leisurely pace.

If learning a second language is on your to-do list -- or if introducing your kids to a new language sounds like fun -- use your East Hampton Public Library card to sign up for a free Transparent Language Online service account. This web-based language-learning program offers more than 80 languages, including English as a second language for a variety of non-native English speakers.

Want to Learn While You Travel or Commute?
Once your create your free account, you may also use the Go Mobile tab with your Apple iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, or Android powered device and use the three steps to download and run the app.
Live Mocha
Connect to a large online language learning community.
Open Culture
Free lessons in 40 languages.
Google Translate
Use it to translate sentences or to translate entire web sites.

So have fun this summer and perhaps dabble in the prospect of ¡El que habla dos lenguas vale por dos! The person who speaks two languages is worth two!
