Mango is the most effective way to learn to speak a foreign language. It’s FAST! It’s FUN! And it is totally FREE from the library, and 30 of its much loved learning courses have doubled in size–meaning ten new chapters and over 1,000 additional learning hours. Log into your account (you will need your library card number), click on Mango and begin. Also works on your Android phone. The 14 new languages are: Armenian, Azerbaijani, Hungarian, Kazajh, Seribian, Yiddish, Bengali, Malay, Malayalam, Punjabi, Telugu, Scottish Gaelic, ESL Arabic MSA and ESL Armenian.
