The Libraries are making Mango, a web-based “language learning centre,” available to you free on a trial basis until mid-July. It offers Basic and Complete 2.0 courses in easy, interactive modules for 34 languages from Arabic to Vietnamese, as well as ESL courses for speakers in 15 different languages. Mango also includes Google’s quick translation tool. Please note this is available on the Dal campus only.
