Library announces addition of Mango Languages

DEARBORN — The city’s libraries now offer the Mango Languages online language learning system.

The program is free for all library cardholders and offers a solution for the community’s increasing language-learning needs.

Each lesson combines real life situations and audio from native speakers with simple, clear instructions. The courses are presented with an appreciation for cultural nuance and real-world application that integrates components of vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar and culture.

Users can learn actual conversation, breaking down complex conversational elements within an audio-visual framework that allows the user to draw important connections between pieces of information they already have learned.

Mango is available in two versions. One is Mango Complete, a 100-lesson course that is designed to provide a deep understanding of a language and its culture.

The second is Mango Basic, which teaches everyday greetings, expressions of thanks, goodbyes and helpful phrases in a short period of time and is designed to appeal to a beginner in a new language.

To learn more about Mango or get a preview of the program, stop by one of the city’s public library.

Mango can be accessed via the library Website,
