Going abroad? Learn a foreign language with Mango.

With a focus on practical conversation for common situations, Mango teaches basic language skills travelers can use to successfully navigate a new country, seek out authentic cultural experiences, and engage in polite conversation. Mango offers self-paced, online tutorials for all major European languages, plus around 30 others, including Arabic (Levantine), Chinese (Mandarin and Cantonese), Czech, Farsi, Hebrew, Hindi, Indonesian, Japanese, Korean, Tagalog, Thai, Turkish, Urdu, and Vietnamese. (Arrr, me hearty... not to mention Pirate!) Plus, there are 15 English-as-a-Second Language (ESL) packages to help foreign language speakers learn English. (Available as a one-year pilot project thanks to a federal IMLS/LSTA grant received by the State Library of Ohio.)
