Mango many langsMango languages is a fun way to learn another language.  You can choose from among 37 different languages, such as French, Arabic, Korean, Urdu or Pashto.  I tried teaching myself several and found it to be a very effective way to learn by reading, listening and repeating the online lessson.  There are also English courses for speakers of 15 other languages, such as English for Japanese or Chinese speakers from basic to advanced levels. 

Mango languages uses real-life situations and actual conversations to more effectively teach a new language. By listening to and repeating after material designed from native conversations, you'll not only learn the individual words and phrases, you'll know how they're used in practical situations and conversations. You'll learn more than grammar, vocabulary and conjugation, you'll learn how to communicate.  And for people on the go, Mango has an app you can download onto your iPhone, iPad or other Apple device.
