From the Harford County Public Library:
Avast mateys! Visit any Harford County Public Library branch on Monday, September 19th to celebrate Talk Like a Pirate Day and learn a language, including Pirate. To promote its online language learning resource, Mango Languages, the library will have some high seas fun all day!
Mango is a free resource for library customers and offers a fast and convenient solution for our community’s increasing language-learning needs. Each lesson combines real life situations and audio from native speakers with simple, clear instructions. The courses are presented with an appreciation for cultural nuance and real-world application that integrates vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar and culture. Users learn actual conversation (including Pirate!) by breaking down complex conversational elements within an audio-visual framework. This allows the user to draw important connections between pieces of information they have already learned.
“We are really pleased to be able to bring this resource to the community and to have a little fun in the process”, said Library Director, Mary Hastler.
Contact any branch to learn more about Mango Languages and what fun is planned for September 19th. You can access Mango via the library website at hcplonline.org/research/language. You will need your library card.
