Guide to Mango Language Learning

Mango Language Learning

Mango is an online language learning system teaching practical conversation skills for real communication. It’s the fast, easy and effective way to learn to speak a foreign language!

All you need is an internet connection and your library card number. Follow these easy steps:

Step 1: Access Mango

Go to the PRPL’s Mango Languages page.

Step 2: Create a Login and Password (optional)

On the Mango login screen, you have the option to create a login and password, which will allow Mango to remember where you left off the next time you log in. If you want to skip this, just click Login as Guest.

Step 3: Select a Course

Choose your language and level of instruction. Basic courses are a fast and easy way to learn polite conversation. Complete courses are more in-depth.

Step 4: Access Mango

Once you’ve selected your course, Mango will confirm your browser’s compatibility, load your course, and the Welcome screen will display. You’re ready to begin!

Step 5: Get Talking!

Use the Course Library menu to choose a Lesson. If this is your first time, start with Section 1, Lesson 1.

Use the Arrow Buttons to go forwards and backwards through the course.

Mouse over the words to see their phonetic spellings, and click them to hear a slower, more articulate pronunciation.

Click the Fluency Button to hear the word pronounced at normal speaking speed.

After the narrator reads a slide, the Voice Comparison Button will appear. Click it to compare your pronunciation to that of the narrator.

Keep an eye out for Literal Meanings, Cultural Notes and Grammar Notes. They’ll help you communicate more effectively!

Go Mobile!

Mango language learning can be accessed via your Apple or Android device.
