  • Ida Long Goodman Memorial Library is pleased to announce that it now offers the Mango Languages online language-learning system to its patrons, through the State Library of Kansas.
    Learning a new language with Mango Languages is free for all library patrons, and offers a fast and convenient solution for our community’s increasing language-learning needs. Each lesson combines real life situations and audio from native speakers with simple, clear instructions. Users learn actual conversation, breaking down complex language elements within an audio-visual framework that draws important connections and builds on information they have already learned. There are more than 40 foreign language courses available and 16 English as a Second Language (ESL) courses.
    "We are thrilled to add Mango Languages to our new list of databases." said State Librarian Jo Budler. "There are Kansans who want to learn a second language for business, travel, or just because they think it would be interesting. No matter the reason, Mango makes learning a language fun and we hope the state takes full advantage of one of our newest investments towards enhancing Kansas."
    To learn more about Mango and get a preview of what the program has to offer, stop by the library and we will give you an introduction. You can access Mango through the library website at http://www.kslib.info/librarians/eor.html
