An online language-learning system with access to 70 languages and 21 English language courses.
Mango provides access to over sixty languages for those wanting to learn a language from basic right through to advanced levels with grammar and cultural notes. You can create your own free profile account to track your progress or go straight into learning a language.
Each lesson covers all four key language components for those learning a foreign language or English as a second language:
- Focus on words and phrases that will be the most valuable in common, real-life situations.
- Audio is recorded by native speakers, giving users the best possible model for their own pronunciation. A voice comparison tool allows users to speak into a microphone, see a visual representation of their pronunciation compared to the narrator’s, and adjust until they are as close as possible.
- Using semantic color mapping, literal translations, grammar notes and critical thinking exercises, users are able to easily identify and recognize linguistic patterns.
- Mango integrates cultural insight into every lesson, ensuring an understanding of the customs and etiquette of the people they want to communicate with.
