Always wanted to learn a foreign language or looking to brush up your skills?
We are pleased to tell you about our exciting new language learning resource at Johnston Public Library called Mango Languages, brought to you by the Friends of Johnston Public Library. Described as “deliciously simple language learning” Mango Language is a new electronic resource available for free to Johnston card holders at www.johnstonlibrary.com. This online language learning tool combines everyday conversation skills, memory building strategies and interactivity. It’s engaging, easy to use, and it works.
Mango Languages features language learning programs for many of the world’s most popular languages. Additionally, it also offers customized English as a Second Language courses for many languages, including ESL Spanish, ESL Brazilian Portuguese, ESL French, ESL Russian, ESL Mandarin, ESL Cantonese, ESL Italian, ESL Arabic, ESL Japanese, ESL Vietnamese, ESL Polish, ESL Korean, ESL Greek, ESL German and ESL Turkish.
Mango Languages uses common everyday conversations as the basis of each lesson so you will be able to start using and appreciating what you learn right away. The program revolves around four key-language components (vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar and culture) and integrates strategically-placed memory building and critical-thinking exercises so you remember what you have learned.
So, give it a shot — you have nothing to lose. Give yourself the gift of a new language this year with Mango Languages and Johnston Public Library.
