Learn a Language with your Library Card!
Did you know you can learn a new language from the Arlington Public Library’s website? The Library offers a free online service called Mango Languages that is accessible from the Library’s website.
Mango Languages uses real-life situations and conversations to teach a new language. The user listens and repeats material designed from native conversations to learn how words and phrases are used in practical situations. Currently, the Arlington Public Library offers the following languages through Mango:
- English for Spanish Speakers
- Mandarin Chinese
There are two levels of learning. Mango Basic courses quickly teach basic words and phrases, helpful to travelers going on business trips and short vacations. Mango Complete courses are aimed at students who want to move beyond basic language skills.
To access this service, all you need is an internet connection and an Arlington Public Library card. Try it today!
