Mango Languages is just a click away

By Special to the Monitor

Mango Languages is a new database being offered by Los Alamos County Library System and it’s free and accessible from either the library or at home.
Mango includes 29 foreign language courses and 15 courses in English as a Second Language-English for speakers of 15 different first languages.
The user-friendly language learning system has two levels, Basic and Mango Complete. There is also a translation tool for simple language-to-language equivalents. The courses are short, clear and suitable for ages 12 and older and a version for younger patrons may be available in the future.
All patrons need to access Mango is a computer, Internet access, speakers, and to take full advantage, a microphone to hear how their own pronunciation compares.
Accessing the system is easy, patrons just need to create an account with their e-mail and password, activate their account after receiving an e-mail from Mango and log in.
Those interested can get started by choosing which language they would like to learn. This system is geared to help learners communicate in common situations.
The basic program requires between two and five hours of time to complete, while the Mango Complete program teaches in-depth, comprehensive language and grammar skills.
