Learn a new language

Did you know we have a fun, fast and easy language learning program called Mango Languages? The best part is it is free for Santa Clara City Library patrons. You can access it anywhere there is internet with your library card. How do you do it?

From the library's home page:

Perfect for a beginner, Mango Basic teaches everyday greetings, gratitudes, goodbyes and helpful phrases in a short period of time. The courses, which require only two to five hours to complete, are available in 22 foreign languages and 14 ESL, English as a Second Language courses.

Mango Complete offers a 100-lesson course that digs much deeper and is designed to provide a more complete understanding of the entire language and culture. It is available in nine foreign languages and three ESL courses. Foreign language courses include Chinese, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.
