Bonjour! Marhaba! Guten Tag! Ni Hao! Hello!
No matter what you are majoring in, or where you want to go in life, knowing another language will help you get there.
Here at the TCC Library System, we are proud to offer all of our students, faculty, and staff free access to Mango Languages – the online language learning service that helps adult students learn by combining together all the elements of video, audio, text, and speech practice.
Anyone can log into Mango from the TCC campus network with no problem (college PC’s in all TCC campus libraries, computer labs, etc.). You can ALSO access the program for FREE from home on your laptop or portable device, when logged into the library’s website with your current TCC student credentials. Once you have created your account, you can log into it from anywhere you get online. Mango users can also pause their lessons and come back to it later. The software will remember where you were, and pick up from where you left off.
At the present time, our TCC account with Mango Languages is offering training in the following 6 languages:
- Spanish (Latin America)
- English (as a 2nd Language)
- Arabic (Modern Standard)
- Chinese (Mandarin)
Those cover all the language courses currently taught at Tarrant County College, and more! In time, we may offer additional languages from the Mango catalog, such as Russian, Japanese, or even Pirate-Speech! … (Yes, really.)
For a full listing of all 71 languages currently available to libraries across the country from the Mango Corporation, click HERE … and if you decide to take advantage of the Mango program to learn a new language, please leave us a comment and let us know how you like it! 🙂
Learn a Language… See the World… Talk to People… Try some Mango… and then be sure to check back here on the NE Library blog again in June to see what our next Database of the Month will be!
While you wait, take a word of advice from the great Lane Meyer (John Cusack) in Better Off Dead, who taught us that “language lessons” can turn your whole life around.
