We are pleased to announce that we now offer the Mango Languages online language-learning system to our patrons.
Learning a new language with Mango Languages is free for all library patrons, and offers a fast and convenient solution for 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.
Mango is available in two versions. One is Mango Complete, a 100-lesson course that is designed to provide a deep understanding of a language and its culture. The second is Mango Basic, which teaches everyday greetings, goodbyes and helpful phrases in a short period of time and is designed to appeal to a beginner in a new language. There are more than 40 foreign language courses available and 16 English as a Second Language (ESL) courses.
Ebooks are now available to CCFLS library patrons via Overdrive! As long as you have a valid CCFLS library card you’ll be able to check out ebooks to read on a variety of ebook readers, mobile devices, or your home computer.
