Mango is an online language-learning system available free to WPL customers with library cards in good standing.
Mango uses real-life situations and actual conversations to more effectively teach a new language. By listening to and repeating after material designed from native conversations, you’ll not only learn the individual words and phrases, you’ll know how they’re used in practical situations and conversations. You’ll learn more than grammar, vocabulary and conjugation, you’ll learn how to communicate.
And when you learn the everyday conversation skills and cultural insights you need to connect with new people and cultures, you gain the confidence to start great conversations. And keep them going. Mango Languages is language learning for the adventurous, the ambitious and the curious!
To access Mango, log on to the Windsor Public Library web site with your library card number and PIN number. Click on eResources, Databases, scroll down a bit to Special Interest, Language, and click on Mango Languages. Once there, you quickly create a profile with email and password, which Mango will confirm with you by email, and then you’re ready to go! Choose from over 50 languages, learn actual conversations, sound out new words, and check your pronunciation.
