    Learn How to Speak Like a Pirate with Mango Languages


    Well, shiver me timbers and blow me down! September 19 is Speak Like a Pirate day!  If you need to brush up on your Pirate-lingo, look no further than our Mango Languages database. You can download the free app onto your phone and take a few lessons from our Pirate course. Learn how to order grog, introduce yourself to a lass, or haul wind!

    And if you’re already fluent in Pirate, then brush up on a different language. Mango can help you learn Spanish, English, Russian, Mandarin Chinese, Italian, Egyptian Arabic, Azerbaijani, Hebrew, Cherokee…over 70 languages and 20 ESL courses taught in the native language of the user.

    Mango is designed to be used by all ages and you can take each lesson at your own pace. So what are you waiting for me hearties? Access Mango Languages from the library today.

    (Arrrgh. One more thing: if you need help finding the database or downloading the app speak with library staff. Arrrgh.)
