The library is pleased to announce that it now offers the Mango Languages online language-learning system to its patrons. The Northeast Library System recently awarded the library a grant of $750. The grant funds were used towards the Mango Languages annual subscription fee.
Mango is free for all library patrons and can be accessed anywhere with an Internet connection. Each lesson combines real life situations and audio from native speakers with simple, clear instructions. The courses are presented with an appreciation for cultural nuance and real-world application by focusing on the four key elements of language learning: vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar, and culture.
Mango offers access to 63 foreign language courses and 18 English courses taught completely in the user’s native language. In addition to traditional language courses, Mango also offers the opportunity to learn through foreign film with Mango Premiere and access to a variety of specialty mini courses, like Pirate, Medical Spanish and romance courses. Mango can be accessed at the library, remotely, or even on-the-go with apps for iPhone, Android, Kindle, and Nook. To learn more about Mango, stop by the library or call 946-2512. Library card holders can access Mango through the library website at: libraries.ne.gov/centralcity
The International Program at NE Christian will be presenting their 2nd cooking school this year. The Chinese girls will be teaching us how to cook and serve a “Chinese Hot Pot.” This is a healthy version of a fondue party. The Chinese families serve this meal on special occasions when the family can all gather for a long meal filled with good healthy food and good family conversation. This meal is simple to prepare and fun to eat. Come and share a hot pot with us as you learn how to prepare and serve this dish in your own home. International cooking classes provide a wonderful opportunity to learn about other cultures!
Pre-Registration is required! Fee: $10 (payable evening of class) Includes steak, chicken and shrimp. Location: Heartland Evangelical Free Church (1620 19th St. Central City, NE).
