Make the most of your travels abroad this summer by learning a few conversational phrases before you go by using CCPL’s database – Mango Languages.
Mango is an online language learning system that teaches real conversation skills for practical communication. Available on the library’s website, Mango offers 49 language experiences including Spanish, Italian, and German and 15 English as a Second Language ( ESL) lessons with different levels of fluency. The basic level offers lessons for common and practical phrases that can be learned over a few short hours. The more advanced level offers more in-depth lessons in language and grammar skills.
Mango uses the Google translation engine to translate phrases or conversations from one language to another.
You can access Mango Languages on Clermont County Public Library’s website by going to www.clermontlibrary.org and click on Research and Homework then click on Databases, All you need is a computer and a library card.
