Mango Languages iPhone app

Mango Languages has a new iPhone app.  Information from their press release is below.  If you'd like a Mango quote, just let me know.


The free application was designed for the iPhone and iPod Touch but also works with the iPad.  It offers the same functionality as Mango’s online self-study language learning software. Once installed, the program does not require Internet access, patrons just download what they need when they need it.

The iPhone application is available to all libraries in Mango’s growing network for free.  This means almost 90 million people throughout the United States and Canada can now take Mango on the road, making the product even more valuable as users can learn when and where they want to. The product’s tagline, “Mango now goes where you go”, conveys that message.

Mango includes 49 courses, 15 of which are English as a Second Language (ESL) courses.  Created to provide the conversation skills that a user needs to successfully communicate and engage with the local population, Mango Languages also provides an understanding of the new language and culture.

The lessons are presented with an appreciation for cultural nuance and real-world application that goes beyond teaching vocabulary and pronunciation to integrate components of grammar and culture. The Mango Intuitive Language Construction Methodology teaches actual conversation, breaking down complex conversational elements with a highly interactive interface that enables the user to build important connections between previous lessons.

            Since its founding in 2007, Mango Languages has grown to become one of the world's leading providers of language learning products. That growth will continue throughout 2011, as the company plans to enrich content and introduce several new products, languages and features, each of which will target a specific user profile to meet that user's specific language needs – the ultimate goal being to learn a language.
