Face it. It's only been two weeks, but your New Year's resolution is done for, dusty with cobwebs, lingering dimly in the weeks past like an like an old yearbook picture you'd rather forget. No sweat. Mine too. So why not ditch it and start over? It's never too late. Visit our Digital Learning page and take a look at Mango languages. With Mango you can learn a new language at your own pace, in as little as a few minutes a day. Best of all, Mango does not aim to be comprehensive—that means no verb conjugations!—it teaches a conversational approach that will help you get by in all your travels, be they literal, imaginary, or metaphysical.
Mango offers more than 70 languages to choose from. Also, once you login with your Free Library card and PIN, you'll be able to create a Mango profile. With this profile you can add the Mango app to your smartphone or tablet and keep track of your learning on the go. Most of Mango's courses are designed for English speakers looking to learning a new language. However, Mango also offers a number of courses designed for those who would like to learn English (including courses for speakers of Spanish, Russian, Chinese, Arabic, and 15 additional languages).
So give Mango a try. Maybe for next year's resolution you'll finally have the languages skills to make that trip you've always meant to take to Japan, or Paris, Brazil, Moscow, or Senegal—or wherever your curiosity takes you.
