Five top universities in Turkey -- Ankara University, Bilkent University, Boğaziçi University, Ege University and Istanbul Technical University -- now offer more language-learning options for their students and faculty with Rosetta Stone Library Solution Plus, the leading technology-based language-learning resource, from EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO). Rosetta Stone provides students with a cutting-edge approach to language-learning while also meeting the multicultural needs of universities. According to a report from U.S. News and World Report, these five universities are ranked in the top eight for Best Global Universities in Turkey.
Rosetta Stone Library Solution Plus offers libraries and their students the proven immersion method used by millions of learners around the world for over 20 years. The database offers 30 languages to meet a range of cultural interests and provides core lessons to build reading, writing, speaking and listening skills. The award-winning interactive approach is accessible in the library or anywhere, anytime.
The five universities from Turkey have already seen great improvement in language learning with the implementation of Rosetta Stone Library Solution Plus and anticipate continued success with their students’ language journey. Göknur Aslan, Library Director of Istanbul Technical University, says Rosetta Stone is helping the university meet the language-learning needs of its students. “Rosetta Stone has helped our University address our multifaceted language-learning needs for our students outside of just the standard classroom setting. This has allowed our students to further develop, both academically and personally, when it comes to their language-learning journey.”
Tuna Can, Library Director of Ankara University, believes Rosetta Stone will give students a competitive edge. “In an increasingly competitive global economy, students cannot afford to be monolingual. With the adoption of Rosetta Stone, Ankara University is committed to helping our students prepare for the workforce.” Ali Cemal Demir, Library Director of Ege University, adds that Rosetta Stone supports students who are planning to study in different parts of the world. “Rosetta Stone has further prepared our students for their particular study abroad experiences.”
The library director of Boğaziçi University, Zeynep Metin, says Rosetta Stone will help prepare students for global success and serve as a great tool for staff. “We believe that the adoption of Rosetta Stone will not only help our students expand their language portfolios, but it will also help equip our staff with language learning that further improves their interactions with students while simultaneously expanding the scope of their international studies and the influence of their research. Boğaziçi University is best known for its open-minded, socially-active cultural environment which helps to graduate students as multi-skilled world citizens. Rosetta Stone contributes to the personal development of students and supports them in the global working environment.”
