Mango Goes Wherever Life Takes You
Mango Mobile Library Edition is a powerful language learning
platform that delivers fast, easy and effective language learning wherever your
travels take you.
Our free app accesses the Mango Languages courses available
through our library, and works just like Mango online. Simply touch the screen
to reveal answers and to hear pronunciations by native speakers. You’ll learn
vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar, and culture in each lesson through Mango
methodology, called Intuitive Language Construction™.
For the app to work, you must have an account with Mango set up through
our library’s website, and an iPhone®, iPod® touch or iPad®. Once the app and
lessons have been downloaded, you can learn at your own pace, with or without
an internet connection.
