New! Mango Languages Program


Pittsburg Public Library is pleased to announce that we now offer the Mango Languages online language-learning system. This web-based program is FREE to Pittsburg Public Library patrons, through the State Library of Kansas.

Mango is available in two versions. Mango Complete, a 100-lesson course that is designed to provide a deep understanding of a language and its culture.

Mango Basic is a beginner course that teaches everyday greetings, goodbyes, and helpful phrases in a short period of time.

Mango Languages offer more than 40 foreign language courses and 16 English as a Second Language (ESL) courses.

Click the link to get started. New users will need to create a profile with an email address and password. Mango will track your progress and you learn a new language.
