Product Descriptions

Mango Languges offers a fast and convenient solution for your community’s increasing language-learning needs. Each lesson combines real life situations and audio from native speakers with simple, clear instructions. The courses are presented with an appreciation for cultural nuance and real-world application that integrates components of vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar and culture. Users learn actual conversation, breaking down complex linguistic elements within an audio-visual framework that draws important connections and builds on information they have already learned.

Your subscription now includes Mango Premiere, the first and only language and culture learning system that teaches through feature films.  Take a short video tour of Mango Premiere.

Features that make Mango a stand-out language learning program include:

Learn Through Conversations
Every lesson of Mango is taught through conversations, giving you an edge in understanding the discourse of your new language.

Goal-Based Learning
Part of becoming proficient in your new language is to accomplish specific communication tasks. Each chapter aligns your learning to a set of conversational and grammar goals.

Challenge Your Critical Thinking
With a focus on getting you to create new meaning on your own, Mango challenges you to combine what you've already learned to build something new.

Relevant Learning Material
Learn things you'll actually put to use in your new language. By learning language and culture through the lens of real situations, you're more prepared to hit the streets.

Cultural Insights
Highly relevant culture notes are sprinkled into each lesson. Language lets you speak, but cultural understanding lets you connect with a new way of life.

Grammar Insights
While much of the grammar in Mango is learned without you even realizing it, specific grammar insights are sprinkled throughout the lessons for clarity.

Memory Building Exercises
Perfectly timed memory building exercises ensure you actually retain what you learn. Get something wrong? Don't worry, you'll come back to it later.

Interactive Audio
Didn't catch something? No problem! Listen to crystal clear and articulate audio for every word and phrase. Dial in that perfect accent in no time.

Pronunciation Helpers
Intuitive popups help you tune your pronunciation with amazing precision. Even the most difficult to pronounce words can be mastered with ease.

Voice Comparison
Record your speech and compare it directly to audio from a native speaker to hear exactly how to tune in your accent. You'll be ready for the real thing in no time.

Semantic Color Mapping
Semantic color mapping quickly reveals the relationship between your mother tongue and your new language, giving you insight into the expressive mechanics of your new language.

Understood and Literal Meanings
Get a better understanding of how your new language works by learning both understood and literal meanings. For example, the literal meaning for 'How are you?' in Russian is 'How your things?'.
