Mango Languages database now even better!

Traveling someplace different for the holidays this year? If you want to speak like the locals, try our Mango Languages database.

Mango offers a unique way of learning, using different colors for different parts of speech, and taking you through full conversations. There are also grammar and culture notes for each different country.

The best part is that Mango has a brand new add-on: Mango Premiere!

Mango Premiere is the first and only language-learning resource to teach through film. Focusing on the four key areas of language learning – vocabulary, phrases, culture and grammar – you not only get a good education, but also all the fun and excitement of watching a movie.

Come up to the 3rd floor and ask a librarian how to get started!
