  • Mango Classroom - Mango Languages

    Mango Classroom by Mango Languages is an engaging, flexible, and efficient language-learning system that guides language learning in and outside of the classroom and inspires new generations of learners to communicate with confidence. This comprehensive resource helps teachers prepare students for emerging careers and global opportunities.

     

    Designed by expert linguists specifically to engage and motivate students, Mango Classroom is built on a proven conversation-focused methodology, Intuitive Language Construction. The system offers language learning in over 70 world languages (as well as English for English learners, supporting 20 native tongues.)

     

    The intuitive learning system provides a self-paced learning experience that helps create a “safe space” where students can practice at their own pace. Using audio from native speakers recorded at both a carefully articulated and a conversational pace, the platform showcases practical and authentic material with topically focused conversations, featuring modern expressions presented in cultural context and alongside cultural insights. Pronunciation tools like Mango’s Voice Comparison Tool and interactive phonetic support help students fine-tune their speaking skills. Critical-thinking slides, memory-building exercises, grammar notes, listening and reading exercises round out the content, helping reinforce learning from multiple angles and supporting diverse learning styles.

     

    Automatically graded quizzes and assessments give students formative feedback and teachers the accountability measures they need to identify gaps and inform instruction.

     

    Mango Classroom can complement curricula or stand alone. Educators utilize supplemental course guides, lesson-planning materials, and in-classroom activities to promote classroom learning. Families participate in language learning to further proliferate student engagement.

     

    Mango’s content is specially structured to identify skill levels and track achievements along the Mango Proficiency Scale, which compares favorably to ACTFL levels, the national World-Readiness Standards for Learning Languages, including universally recognized standards of proficiency and the 5 C’s (Communication, Cultures, Connections, Comparisons, and Communities).

     

    Mango’s online learning system (web-based software and application) is compatible across devices and operating systems: Android, iOS, PC, Mac. Learning is truly on-demand, including offline learning, Bluetooth, and hands-free capabilities for learning-on-the-go.
