Learn a New Language with BYKI Online!


Byki, short for “Before You Know It,” is a rapid learning system employing spaced interval repetition. The Byki learning method takes you through a series of simple steps to memorize words and phrases in a new language, including their meanings and proper pronunciation, in the shortest possible time.

Available for learning over 70 languages, library patrons are able to access the Byki Online system from inside or outside of the library, via the web browser on Windows and Mac computers.  Users will have a variety of high quality learning options that build listening, reading, speaking, and writing skills. In addition, Byki includes Advanced Pronunciation Analysis to help users perfect their pronunciation skills. Individual progress tracking and assessment tests help identify areas for improvement and move users in the right direction.

First time users MUST create their log in name/password using a library computer.  Once the account has been created at the library, you can access BYKI from ANY computer.
