    I thought that this site was just great. I learned alot about the french language. Please let the public have more acces to these types of sites.

    Great site! The voice comparison is a neat feature. My family will definitely use this site.

  3. Alissa Says:

    Great resource – I completed the first three Spanish lessons, and the repetitions are very helpful. It doesn’t take very long, so you could re-visit the lessons frequently.

  4. Anna Tyrer Says:

    Awesome program! i am thrilled to have a resource like this so easily accessible. I loved the voice comparison feature my kids and I will all be using this program.

  5. Tonya Carlson Says:

    Awesome resource, and it is free for all members which is even better! I’ve had access to Rosetta Stone software, and this is very comparable. I’ve already finished several lessons in Spanish and will be coming back to continue to practice.

    Hi. I have a question. Is it possible to change email addresses on Mango? Or, do I have to make a new account?

  14. Cinoo Says:

    This is great!
    I like how it makes you repeat so eventually you’ll memorize it w/o even thinking.
    It’s easy to use and pretty too! : )
    Thank you!

    Wonderful way to brush up on my High School spanish. I’d like to try another language, too! Thanks for offering this site! 🙂

    It looks like you can switch your email address in Mango. If you log in, you should see a message that reads “Logged in as” with the current email address. If you click on the email address, you should be able to change it.

    Hopefully that works! Let us know if you have any other questions.

    I love languages, but I never knew where to start when wanting just the baisics. This site rocks!

    I have always been fascinated with languages, dialects and accents. I took German in high school but now that my son and his wife are missionaries in a Spanish-speaking country, I’d love to learn a little Spanish too. What a lot this site has to offer! I just might have to find time to learn a little French, and Arabic, and Japanese…

    Only reason I went to the library was for your DVD rentals. Your DVD’s ended up being all scratched up and not playable. People don’t take care of them.
    The only service I use now is Mango Languages and have learned alot from it.
