FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich., May 8, 2012
FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. , May 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Mango Languages, a leading provider of consumer language learning resources, has expanded its Mango Passport software package to include new “Journeys”—in-depth, engaging and fun courses that strengthen language skills in all areas. Mango Languages CEO Jason Teshuba made the announcement.
Mango developed its Journeys to expand content and take users farther in their own language travels. All 28 Mango Passport courses (including 16 foreign languages and 12 for English language learners) take users through the first Journey, getting them started speaking, interacting and absorbing grammar, etiquette and vocabulary from the first lesson.
Now, with the added content of Journeys 2-3 for eight of its most popular languages, Mango Passport users can cover more complex grammar and vocabulary, experience more vibrant cultural insights and come closer to fluency than ever before.
“Language learning can be a part of everyone's lifestyle,” says Teshuba. “When we started Mango, we wanted to make learning a new language fun, engaging and accessible to anyone. Mango Passport's new Journeys make our software valuable to everyone, whether they are moving to a foreign country, or just learning to say 'hello.'”
Mango's unique structure lets users learn at their own pace and from wherever they are, including an audio-only version for MP3 devices. Every version starts users speaking and understanding their new language from the first lesson.
Available languages for Mango Passport Journeys 1-3: French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and English (for Spanish speakers)
Available languages for Mango Passport Journey 1: Chinese (Mandarin), Farsi, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Thai, Turkish, Vietnamese and English (for speakers of Brazilian Portuguese, Chinese, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Russian, Spanish and Turkish)
