Promotional Resources Guide: Mango Languages

Database Description

Mango Languages is an online language-learning website and mobile app that offers language courses. Mango's language-learning methodology is called Intuitive Language Construction™, which builds the six critical skills necessary for true language learning: vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation, culture, comprehension, and retention.

Mango's adaptive learning process evolves to the user's progress and unique learning behaviors, preparing them to start the conversation with confidence. Mango adapts to the user's unique learning style, so they can pick up on new vocabulary, intuit unfamiliar grammatical structures, and train their pronunciation.

Mango offers over 70 world language courses, English lessons in 21 languages, and specialty courses to teach cultural differences.

Mango's features include interactive lessons, spaced repetition, reinforcement exercises, color-coded translations, and video content.
