Learn languages online through your local library

Your local library (Houston Public Library for me) may have access to the online Mango Language program.  If so, you can probably access the training classes for free.

Today is International Talk Like a Pirate Day (Sept 19th). HPL will let you access the pirate lessons for free without a library card -

To access any of the other courses at the Houston Library website, you will need your library card.

Go to Research, click Alphabetical Database Listing, and then M for Mango Languages.  Mango immerses you in real, everyday conversations in multiple languages, including Spanish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin Chinese, Russian, Arabic or learn ESL for Spanish, Vietnamese, Arabic and more.
