Database of the Month: Mango Languages

mango ii

Are you taking Spanish, French, Greek, or Hebrew at Oakwood?

Are you an international student who’s currently learning English as a foreign language?

Are you a voice student who’d like to practice French, German, or Italian pronunciation?

Are you preparing for an overseas mission trip or a semester abroad?

Do you just like learning new things?

If any of these apply to you, Mango Languages might be your new best friend. With over 70 languages to choose from (including rarely offered languages like Cherokee, Urdu, and Haitian Creole), Mango guides you through language acquisition using real-life conversations, not long lists of vocabulary and grammar rules. Each lesson is short and offers plenty of opportunities to test yourself and review previously acquired knowledge. You can even record yourself and compare your pronunciation to a native speaker’s.

Not persuaded that Mango could add value to your life? Let the Mango Languages team explain what makes their approach simple, effective, and fun.
