Mango Languages

Mango Languages provides an introduction to language and culture through learning practical conversation skills. Using real-life situations and actual conversations, you will not only learn words and phrases, but also how to use them. A text translator is also provided.

Mango offers self-paced courses for over 60 languages. All languages include “Mango Conversations”, the main learning course, and some languages provide mini courses for specific situations. There are also assessment tests for placement within a course if you already have some knowledge of the language that you want to learn.

ESL courses are offered for Armenian, Arabic (Egyptian), Arabic (MSA), Chinese (Cantonese), Chinese (Mandarin), French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese (Brazilian), Russian, Spanish, Turkish and Vietnamese speakers. Learn in a user-friendly environment, at your own pace and in a fun way through a combination of audio, video clips and written text.

Getting started is easy! Simply make your database selection, enter your card/Pin and create your Mango Languages account. Once you are in Mango you can select a language and start learning!

Mango Languages is also available as a mobile app for multiple devices. Find out more here.
