Learning a new language or brushing up on those skills you learned in high school can be difficult or lackluster. If you’d like to spice up your language learning sessions, drop by the library to peruse one of our foreign language magazines. Currently, we have subscriptions to several different titles in three different foreign languages.
If French is your forte, look for France-Amerique, the periodical that links America and France through current events, culture, art, and profiles. You might also be interested in J’Aime Lire, with its short stories and colorful pictures, this is a fun book to entertain adults as they learn French or to get children interested in learning another language.
For students of the German language, the library has issues of the travel magazine Merian and the German version of Reader’s Digest, Reader’s Digest Deutschland. Be on the lookout for a new subscription to Bunte, a weekly general interest magazine that the library should start receiving in the Spring semester.
Our students who are learning or who already have skills in speaking Spanish will enjoy reading Vanidades and Prevention en Espanol. All of these magazines can be found in our periodicals shelving area. If you need help
finding one, see your librarian today!
