Mango Language’s Homeschool Edition is helping homeschool parents grow students brighter with a fun and engaging new approach to language learning. After just one lesson, it’s delightful to see students excited over how quickly they comprehend new words and phrases in a foreign language.
With over 60 world languages to choose from online and PDF-curriculum outlines, homeschool parents have just as much fun following along and learning, too. And keeping up with students’ progress tracking and grades is a breeze with Mango’s assessment portal, the one-stop shop that monitors all activity and reports back.
Mango was built by professional linguists and works with a unique methodology, which they consider to be the four main components of language learning–grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, and culture.
Grammar lessons are incorporated into each Mango chapter through notations and offer explanations on grammar variations, which are quite common when learning a new language. These helpful highlights are sprinkled throughout lessons so that students don’t feel overwhelmed and can instead use their own intuition to piece words and phrases all together on their own.
Mango helps learners grasp the fundamentals of a foreign language through semantic-color mapping–a term Mango uses to describe the colorful and interactive interface that assists learners with understanding parts of speech and sentence structure. By hovering the cursor over a word, learners can view both a word’s English meaning along with hearing an audio sample of a native speaker’s proper pronunciation.
When it comes to vocabulary, Mango keeps it mixed into entertaining conversations. Instead of tedious lists to memorize, vocabulary is cohesively fused into sentences. Students won’t feel like they’re learning vocabulary; they’ll feel like they’re learning to communicate.
But what good will perfect pronunciation and grammar do if the content students are learning isn’t relative? Mango keeps all content realistic and applicable to real-life scenarios. Instead of learning, “The young boy stepped over the brown goat,” they’ll first learn practical phrases like, “Hi, how are you doing?”
Aside from the company’s bright colors and friendly attitude, Mango sets itself apart with its love for keeping up a strong connection and dedication to supporting homeschool educators.
