Whether you are planning a mission trip to Indonesia, getting in touch with your Norwegian roots, or have always wanted to read the Bible in the original Hebrew and Greek, Mango Languages can help you achieve your goals. Language study is a crucial component for understanding another culture. While complete fluency in a language requires years of study, even basic proficiency will make you feel more at ease when abroad and impress your overseas contacts with your good manners in taking the time to learn some of their language. It will also make your time in a foreign country much more rewarding. As Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote, “No man should travel until he has learned the language of the country he visits. Otherwise he voluntarily makes himself a great baby, so helpless and so ridiculous.”

Say hello to the Library’s newest language-learning resource: Mango Premiere™. The newest addition to the popular Mango Languages database, Mango Premiere is the first and only language-learning resource to teach through film.
Turning the entertainment experience into a learning experience, Mango Premiere exposes students to four key areas of language learning – vocabulary, phrases, culture and grammar – all while enjoying the fun and excitement of a movie.
Users are able to customize their learning experience by choosing how they want to watch a film. In “Movie Mode”, you can watch the entire movie with your choice of subtitles (English subtitles, subtitles in the language you’re learning, or both). Or you can select “Engage Mode” to learn each scene’s dialogue, part-by-part.
Along the way, you’ll see all the same features that Mango users have come to know and love: semantic color mapping, phonetic pop-ups, quizzes, Grammar Notes, Culture Notes, and more.
