Did you know we have a fun, fast and easy language learning program called Mango Languages? The best part it is free for library cardholders (and the cards are free) and you can access it anywhere there is internet with your library card.
Mango is the easiest and most effective way to learn to speak a foreign language. Mango is available in two versions:
Perfect for a foreign language beginner, Mango Basic teaches everyday greetings, gratitudes, goodbyes and helpful phrases in a short period of time. The courses, which require only two to five hours of time to complete, are currently available in 22 foreign languages and 14 English as a Second Language (ESL) courses.
