Mango is a language learning program that offers more than 70 language courses and ESL instruction in 17 languages. It can be used by kids and adults. The lessons look like flashcards, and users can go from one “flashcard” to another for the lesson parts. Each lesson starts out with a spoken conversation with a translation, and then a step-by-step explanation of the meanings of the words and how to pronounce them. The cards offer opportunities to immediately test if the word or phrase has been learned with plenty of repetition. The lessons also contain grammar notes as well as cultural notes to help understand the culture or the details of how the culture uses certain words or phrases. Most users take about 20-40 minutes to complete one lesson and three months of daily study to complete a unit. The website also has foreign films to help aid language learning.
