Mango Languages logoMango Languages

PhD-created and linguist-approved software teaches real conversations in over 70 languages and makes it fun. You will build language proficiency and cultural understanding around real-world communication skills that you'll actually need. Learn through examples like 'What time are they arriving?' instead of much less useful phrases like 'The dog is under the table.'  With Mango, you'll learn vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar, and culture all in one integrated experience.

  • Intuitive - Mango breaks things down into small, bite-sized chunks; then challenges you to build them back up into full sentences. You'll learn language structure and vocabulary in a highly intuitive and contextual way.
  • Construct - Mango teaches you how to create new meaning on your own by challenging you to combine freshly learned language structures and vocabulary with ones you learned in the past. You'll be amazed at how early you develop flexible communication skills.
  • Pronounce - Mango's interactive words, pronunciation helpers, and voice comparison technology gives you everything you need to dial in that perfect accent. Audio can be heard slow and articulate, or at a faster conversational pace.
  • Culture - Mango gives you the crucial cultural insights you'll need to communicate appropriately, meet new friends, and fully understand your new language.
  • Movies - Like to watch movies? Imagine having everything you need to learn a new language through foreign film. With Mango, you get real entertainment immersion to take your skills to the next level.
  • Memory building exercises - Perfectly-timed memory building exercises ensure you actually retain what you've learned. Get something wrong? Don't worry, you'll come back to it later.
  • Semantic color mapping - Color mapping quickly reveals the relationship between your native language and your target language, giving you insight into the grammar and expressive mechanics of your new language.
  • Understood and literal meanings - Get a better understanding of your new language by learning both understood and literal meanings. For example, the literal meaning of “How are you?“ is “How your things?“ in Russian.
  • English as a Second Language - Native speakers of over 18 popular languages can learn English from Spanish, Arabic, Chinese, Vietnamese and Korean plus many more.
  • Specialty Courses - Celebrate world cultures and learn languages in specific contexts.  Want to enjoy wine and cheese in France in French?  Speak Italian at the horse races in Sienna?  Converse in German at Oktoberfest and have the proper attire?  There are practical courses too like medical and legal Spanish.  Really get ready for Talk Like a Pirate Day next year!
  • Mobile - Mango goes wherever you go with full apps for iOS and Android mobile devices. Over 60 language courses available in the palm of your hand.
  • Online - Mango can be used online from any computer, anywhere, at any time. No CDs, DVDs, downloads, or installations. Used in conjunction with our mobile apps, Mango is one of the most accessible language and culture learning platforms on earth.
