If your New Year’s resolution was to learn a new language, we have you covered!
HPU Libraries is excited to announce the availability of Mango Languages, a leading language and culture learning resource, available online from anywhere, 24/7. Mango Languages enriches lives with language and culture through self-guided courses that go beyond grammar and vocabulary, introducing language learners to a whole new world.
Accessible through the library website, and mobile apps for Apple, Android, Kindle and Nook devices, Mango Languages has more than 70 foreign language and ESL courses, including unique culturally thematic specialty courses, like Medical Spanish, Soccer Celebration (Brazilian Portuguese), Endangered Languages–even Pirate! Mango also features Mango Premiere, the first of its kind program to teach language through full-length international films.
Mango Languages is great for students struggling with meeting their foreign language course requirements, planning to study abroad, international students looking to understand English, faculty looking to provide complementary coursework or extra credit, or any travel enthusiast.
“Mango has received overwhelmingly positive feedback from small and large academic institutions alike. Students love the interactive, dynamic learning environment Mango Languages provides, and faculty respect our unique learning methodology,” said Jason Teshuba, CEO of Mango Languages. “It’s imperative that today’s students are offered language learning options to prepare for success in a global marketplace. Studies show bilingual pay differentials range between five and 20 percent per hour more than the base rate.”
