The library’s Mango is a new kind of variety… an online language learning system! Mango teaches real conversation skills through fun and engaging interactive lessons, right on your computer, anytime you like! The Mango system is completely web-based and remotely accessible, so you can learn anywhere you have an internet connection — at the library, a coffee shop, or even at home in bed. Choose from Arabic, Chinese, Dari, Farsi, French, German, Hebrew, Hindi, Irish, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Pashto, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Tagalog, Thai, Turkish, Urdu, Vietnamese, and English as a Second Language (ESL), in different levels of fluency. Best of all, with Langdon Library’s subscription now in place, it’s free for Newington residents… All you need is your library card number!
