More information

Each lesson covers all four key language components for those learning a foreign language or English as a second language:

Vocabulary
Focus on words and phrases that will be the most valuable in common, real-life situations.
Pronunciation
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.
Grammar
Using semantic color mapping, literal translations, grammar notes and critical thinking exercises, users are able to easily identify and recognize linguistic patterns.
Culture
Mango integrates cultural insight into every lesson, ensuring an understanding of the customs and etiquette of the people they want to communicate with.
