Transparent Language, Inc., a leading provider of language-learning solutions for the government, military, education, library, corporate, and consumer markets, announced today the addition of Hebrew, Korean, Indonesian, and Turkish to its popular Word of the Day service. With the addition of these four languages, Transparent Language Word of the Day is now available for free in 24 unique languages, including Spanish, French, Arabic, Chinese, and many more.
Transparent Language Word of the Day, which is available free to all language learners, is designed to make language part of learners' daily routines by presenting and teaching proper usage of a new word each day. In addition to providing a sample sentence and audio pronunciation, the service also displays language and culture blog articles. Transparent Language Word of the Day adds a unique twist by providing Twitter search functionality to find social media discussions in which the day's word is being used, allowing learners to see exactly how the word is employed by real, native speakers in everyday life.
Transparent Language also announced the addition of a new Hebrew Language and Culture Blog, written by a team of educators, learners, and native speakers. Designed to enrich basic language studies with cultural vibrancy and commentary on current events and real-world topics, Transparent Language’s 30 Language and Culture Blogs provide readers with language-learning tips and tricks, as well as cultural information surrounding their target language.
