Need to brush up on a foreign language? Mango is the place to go to learn foreign language at your own pace and in a fun and engaging way. Schools, if willing to pay the fee, can use this site to provide teachers with additional resources for their classrooms. The general public can use it to simply learn a new language. Users can listen to the phrases and words spoken by a native speaker, and the words are color-coded for translation. Each sentence is preceded by an icon for replaying and each word can be scrolled to see the phonetic pronunciation. The lessons include grammatical and cultural notes that provide insight into the language and customs, as well as quizzes and conversations that focus on practical experiences. The slides can be replayed as many times as necessary to learn and reinforce the content.
