Mango Language Learning Center
Learning a new language with Mango Languages is free for all Woodbridge Library patrons with a valid library card, and offers a fast and convenient solution for your 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. You will learn actual conversation, breaking down complex linguistic elements within an audio-visual framework that draws important connections and builds on information you’ve already learned.
Mango is available in two versions. The first is Mango Complete, a 100-lesson course that is designed to provide a deep understanding of a language and its culture. The second is Mango Basic, which teaches everyday greetings, goodbyes and helpful phrases in a short period of time and is designed to appeal to a beginner in a new language. There are more than 47 foreign language courses available and 16 English as a Second Language (ESL) courses. (Available courses listed in full below.)
