Mango Language Learning

Review written by: Amber
4

I just had to write in to let you know how much I LU-UV using Mango through your site to learn new languages!!! One of my biggest complaints moving to the East Lansing area was that my 2nd grader did not get any foreign language studies like at her last school! The Mango link up is extremely easy to you & very intuitive even if you're not a techie! We have so many neighbors from different countries. My neighbor's mother is here from Iraq. During her visit they found out that she was quite ill and could not go home. My neighbor's poor mother has been so lonely as she does not speak much English. After all, she'd had no intention of staying. Just visiting her son & going back home. I can't wait to surprise her by saying Hi How are you? in her own language!!!
