Free language lessons!
This blog is about new paperless reading materials like downloadable audio books, ebooks, and online magazines, made available to you through the Appleton Public Library. I plan to provide helpful tips on using these new products, along with reviews of audio books, music on cd, and movies on DVD and Blu-ray. There may even be an occasional post on genealogy. The library is changing as rapidly as your access to media and the Internet. We want to keep on top of the trends and bring you information and entertainment in a way that fits your life today. -Diana
If you have ever wanted to learn a language, or wish to refresh your knowledge of one you already studied, then Mango Languages is for you!
Go to the Appleton Public Library website, www.apl.org. Under the tab “eLibrary”, choose “A-Z”. Mango Languages is number 45. Click on the link, which will take you to a portal where you may create an account, using your InfoSoup library card number.
The Mango program uses realistic situations and conversations so you learn a language more effectively. You will listen to a native speaker then repeat the words and phrases. Rather than learning by rote, you will learn those words and phrases in context which helps in learning grammar and conjugation. You will more easily learn to communicate in this new language.
There are even versions for iPhone/iPod/iPad and for Android.
There are many languages available for English speakers
Those with dots are the most popular courses.
