Looking to learn a new language? Look no further, Moline Library and Mango Languages can help.

Mango is designed to help you learn to think critically in a new language, which conditions your busy minds to retain what you’ve learned. You’ll learn from lessons, conversations between native speakers and culture-packed films in over 70 world languages. From Spanish to Swahili, English to Icelandic, and Shakespeare to Pirate, Mango has virtually everyone’s language and culture curiosities covered. With Mango, you no longer have to choose between learning how to say the Spanish, “estoy aprendiendo español,” or the Croatian, “učim hrvatski.”

Or perhaps someone you know is working on their English? Mango can help with that too. More than one in five U.S. residents speak a language other than English at home, and nearly 22 percent require development in their English skills. Libraries are perfectly poised to solve this challenge and Mango helps by offering English courses that are easy to follow and fully narrated in the learners’ native language.

Rather have it in mobile format than be stuck to a PC? No problem. Mango’s addicting app is one of the highest-rated education apps out there among library patrons across North America.

Click on the “Catalogs & Databases” tab on the Moline Library’s website to find Mango and start learning a new language today – all it takes is a Moline Library card.
