Learning a new language with Mango Languages is free for all VPL patrons, and offers a fast and convenient solution for today’s increasing language-learning needs. Each lesson combines real life situations and audio from native speakers with simple, clear instructions. The courses are presented with an appreciation for cultural nuance and real-world application that integrates components of vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar and culture. Users learn actual conversation, breaking down complex linguistic elements within an audio-visual framework that draws important connections and builds on information they have already learned.
There are more than 40 foreign language courses available and 16 English as a Second Language (ESL) courses.
