The Villa Park Public Library subscribes to the Mango Language online learning system, and offers the service free to our patrons. Mango is a fast, easy, and effective way to learn to speak a foreign language!
Mango teaches real conversation skills for practical communication. Through fun and engaging interactive lessons, Mango makes learning a new language fast, easy, and incredibly effective. The system is completely web-based, so you can learn anywhere you have an Internet connection.
As you listen to and repeat after native speakers, you’ll learn more than just words and phrases. You’ll learn how those pieces can be rearranged and combined to make more practical communication! In no time at all, you will be able to navigate a variety of everyday situations — get directions, order a meal, make new friends — the possibilities are endless!
