Mango Language Learning has updated their mobile app for iOS and Android. 


Here's what's new:

  • A whole new dazzling interface to keep learning even more fun and engaging.
  • Practice that pitch-perfect accent with Mango's  voice-comparison feature.
  • iPad support now available.

New to Mango? Mango is a service offered by the Libraries that is free to you. With Mango, you can learn (or brush up on) conversational skills in more than 70 foreign languages. Mango is the perfect supplement to your coursework here at the UofA or as preparation for study abroad. (And, if you are into time travel, you can also learn how to converse in ancient Greek, Roman or Hebrew.) Mango also offers English-language courses for speakers of Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Greek, Italian, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Turkish, and Vietnamese. Lessons cover vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar, and culture in real-world situations;

Mango makes learning fun. 

If you have previously downloaded the Mango app, it should have automatically updated on your device.  If you need to install for the first time:

  1. Visit Mango from your computer. 
  2. Create a personal account to track your progress.
  3. Once you have created your personal account, visit iTunes or the Google Play Store to download the app to your mobile device.
