More Mango Resources

by Reference Librarian 2 | November 15, 2019 at 02:11 PM

Mango Languages has added a Language Learning Resources section to their website. Free to anyone, these materials are available for many of Mango's popular languages and supplement the online language learning program already available to library cardholders.

The website organizes the new resources into four broad categories:

  • Useful Phrases:  Printable cheat sheets of essential words and phrases, organized into topics like Survival Basics, Hotel, and Shopping. The entry for each phrase includes audio from a native speaker and phonetic spelling to help with pronunciation.
  • Downloadables:  Materials available to download and supplement learning in your chosen Mango course, including character charts, alphabets, and course outlines and overviews.
  • Videos:  YouTube videos created by linguists and native speakers to help with pronunciation, reading and writing.
  • Additonal Resources:  Blog posts, videos, and news articles on a variety of topics, including book lists, business phrases, and idioms.

To access these resources, visit https://mangolanguages.com/resources/languages/ and click on a resource type listed under the language you are learning.

 

For more information on learning with Mango on the go, visit the library's Mango Languages Mobile App webpage.

Please contact the library's Reference Desk at 978-929-6543 or reference@acton-ma.gov with any questions about Mango or any of the library's e-resources.
