NEW YORK, April 26, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Infobase Holdings, the award-winning cloud-based educational solutions provider that integrates award-winning content, tools, and technology to foster lifelong learning and deliver interactive learning experiences, is now proud to provide Transparent Language Online for U.S. K–12 schools and districts, universities and colleges.
The recipient of seven consecutive Platinum Modern Library Awards (MLAs), Transparent Language Online supports school and library language needs in more than 110 languages and dialects, from Afrikaans to Zulu, including English for speakers of more than 30 native languages. This complete language solution employs innovative technology and methods to enable faster and more reliable language learning outcomes for students, teachers, and anyone intent on becoming more proficient in another language.
Transparent Language Online‘s research-based and experience-driven methodology is designed to help students and adult learners quickly and clearly master a new language. Courses include ESL/ELL resources and languages not offered in the formal curriculum. Additional, resources that designed to supplement existing curriculum are provided for existing curricula in support of middle-school through adult-education programs.
“We are excited that this partnership enables us to empower students and teachers to use new languages in the classroom,” Paul Skordilis, CEO of Infobase, said in a statement. “In a diverse and multicultural world, teaching language skills are an absolute must.”
