Так держать, Майк!
Bien hecho, Miguel
Bien fet, Mike!
Tak trzymać, Mike!

Last week, Mayor Bloomberg signed Executive Order 120, requiring every city agency to provide language assistance in the top six languages spoken by New Yorkers.


We’re always happy to hear about more people getting access to important services. It’s been the goal of Central Library’s Multilingual Center since it opened 11 years ago. The MLC helps immigrants adjust to life in the city with free English conversation groups, free computer training in major world languages, and lectures and workshops on citizenship and job training. For learners of English and a dozen other languages, we have a designated workstation for the Rosetta Stone language learning software.


And did we mention the books? Our world language collection includes fiction and non-fiction titles in more than 30 languages, as well as newspapers and magazines. From Allende to Zweig, we’ve got it covered.


To learn more about the Multilingual Center, or to volunteer to host a multilingual conversation group, call 718.230.2417.

Auf Wiedersehen!
