Do you want to impress your sweetheart with your ability to say “I love you” in a different languages? If so, the library can help!
The Davenport Public Library subscribes to a database called Mango Languages which can help you learn several different foreign languages. So if you want to know how to say, “I love you” in another language this Valentine’s Day, you should take a look at Mango.
Mango Languages offers courses in 71 different languages. But if you want to learn the “Language of Love”, you might want to try French. Or Italian. Or possibly Spanish or Portuguese. Those four languages have entire lesson plans dedicated to “Romance”. Not only will you learn how to say, “I love you” in your chosen language, but you will also learn terms of endearment. The lessons in the Romance section also teach you how to introduce yourself, offer to buy someone a drink, and other phrases that could be useful on a date.
I find that it is very easy to learn new foreign phrases on Mango Languages. The lessons are interactive. You can see the word and hear how it is pronounced at the same time. You can play back the word as many times as you need to in order to get the pronunciation right. And the best thing about Mango Languages is that you can learn at your own pace. All you need is an Internet connection and a Davenport Public Library card in order to access Mango Languages! Go to the Online Resources section of our website. Scroll down alphabetically until you see Mango. It is best if you sign up for a FREE account and all you need is an email account and password. You can also find Mango Languages on Google Play and the App store.
Good luck with learning your new foreign phrases!
