Are you struggling with the speaking portion of a foreign language class? Do accents and pronunciations befuddle and bemuse you? Did you take a foreign language class in high school and then proceed to forget everything? Are you interested in traveling abroad and just want to be able to order food off of a menu while you’re there?

Then we have the perfect solution for you! The library is pleased announce access to the Rosetta Stone: http://library.vccs.edu/license-bin/linker.plx?xpvrose.
