Interested in learning a new language, or know someone who needs help learning English?  Mango Languages software is a great solution.  Mango Languages is made available by the South Carolina State Library and is available free to anyone logging onto a computer with an IP address in South Carolina.  Mango languages provides Ph.D.-created and linguist approved software to teach users conversational language skills in 65 languages, with Cherokee the most recent addition.  Languages range from Spanish and French to Telugu and Dari.  Users are exposed to the language by listening to conversations between native speakers and viewing films.

However, Mango offers something for non-English speakers as well.  English language instruction is available for native speakers of 19 different languages or dialects, including Spanish, Korean, and even Turkish.  Instruction includes basic greetings before moving on to more in-depth discussion, allowing users to quickly gain a basic grasp of useful phrases.

Thanks to the State Library, Mango is available to all South Carolinians or users within the state.  Mango also has a free app that lets you use the software from smartphones or tablets.  To begin using Mango Languages, follow the link from the library’s homepage ( and create a free account, then begin learning new languages.


The Friends of the Library will have a book sale April 30th and May 1st (Thursday and Friday) from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the old Green Salvage Bldg., 126 E. Main St.  Donations will be accepted.
