Learning a New Language? Now on trial — Mango Languages

Mango Languages is a web-based, self-directed application designed to help you learn a new language. Falvey Memorial Library is featuring a Mango Languages trial, which offers an overview of many languages including Spanish, French, German, Italian and Japanese. This product also offers languages with international flavors, such as Arabic (Levantine), Chinese (Mandarin), Farsi, Turkish and Hebrew.

Features include—

—complete control of each lesson by a click-of-the-mouse ability to repeat words and review phrases.

—a combination of audio format and written text that focuses primarily on conversational skills.

—lessons tailored for each language, though all cover standard tourist and language learner topics. Native speakers (male and female) give pronunciation, then pause for the learner to repeat. Review modules for vocabulary, phrases also included.

—grammatical and cultural notes that provide insight into the language and customs, as well as quizzes and conversations that focus on practical experiences.
