Mango Languages is an online language learning system teaching practical conversation skills for real communication. Mango Languages focuses primarily on oral skills and offers a basic introduction to a range of more than 60 languages. Mango can be used online from any computer, anywhere, at any time. No CDs, DVDs, downloads, or installations are needed. It may also be used in conjunction with mobile apps. Mango utilizes its proprietary methodology, engaging interface, and easy, intuitive interactive tools to deliver practical conversational skills and valuable cultural insight for new languages.
Lessons include strategically placed memory-building exercises to help users remember what they are learning in addition to critical thinking exercises, which help them to intuitively understand the language and adapt it to similar conversations.
