Learn a New Language with Mango Languages

Mango LanguagesThe Library has recently acquired Mango Languages, on online language learning system for a wide variety of languages. In no time at all, you’ll be able to navigate all sorts of everyday situations in your new language – get directions, order a meal, make new friends – the possibilities are endless!  Because it is web-based, you can learn anywhere there is an internet connection – at the library, a coffee shop, or even at home in bed.

To use Mango, click on the link above or go to Research Online>Databases.  You’ll find Mango under Academic & Literature.  Create your own online profile to track your progress.  You’ll find the interactive approach both engaging and fun!
