We hope that these last few days of the semester are going well. We realize that once your last final is complete, you may be packing a bag and heading off to places near or far. Your adventures may include locales where languages other than you own are spoken. If that’s the case, or if you are just interested in sitting on your couch and learning a new language, we’ve got you covered.  

You may be wondering, “But how, Brookens Library Blog? How can you possibly help me with this?!” to which we reply, “You have access to a tool called Mango Languages.” Mango Languages is an online culture and language-learning resource that’s available to you 24/7 online or through their mobile app. So go now, visit the Mango Language site , create your free account, and start tracking your language-learning progress today.
