The Johnson County Library announces the addition of the Mango Languages online language-learning system which is available to those with a Johnson County library card and PIN. Mango is free of charge and provides a fun, fast and convenient solution to the community’s growing language learning needs. It is an easy way to learn to speak a foreign language.
Mango’s online language learning system focuses on teaching actual conversation skills for a wide variety of languages. Each lesson combines real-life situations and audio from native speakers with an easy-to-follow interface and simple, clear instructions. Because it's completely web based, library patrons can learn anywhere they have an internet connection — at the library, a coffee shop, or even from home.
Mango Languages currently offers 12 language courses — Brazilian Portuguese, Spanish, Japanese, French, German, Italian, Greek, Russian, Mandarin Chinese, ESL English for Polish speakers, ESL English for Spanish speakers, and ESL English for Brazilian Portuguese speakers — with many more to come.
To access the Library’s Mango Language leaning system, go to www.jocolibrary.org/languages and enter your Johnson County Library Card and PIN.
Mango Languages recently took second place in the Education category of the "Web 2.0 Awards" by SEOmoz and has been recommended by Education World for foreign language learning.
