Mango Languages now offers a free app for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. The app offers the same functionality as Mango’s online self-study language learning software. Once installed, you can download the lessons you are interested in and use the app without an internet connection.
Mango includes 49 courses, 15 of which are English as a Second Language (ESL) courses. Created to provide the conversation skills needed to successfully communicate and engage with the local population, Mango also provides an understanding of the new language and culture.
The lessons are presented with an appreciation for cultural nuance and real-world application that goes beyond teaching vocabulary and pronunciation to integrate components of grammar and culture. Mango teaches actual conversation, breaking down complex conversational elements with a highly interactive interface that enables you to build important connections between previous lessons.
Don’t have an iThing? Mango is always available in the Research Databases area of the CPCC Library website.
