Every so often, the planets align in a certain way, and magic happens. Mango Languages is a young, growing company (We were born in 2007 – your kids might be older than us!), and for seven years now, we’ve dedicated ourselves to enriching lives with language and culture. Each year, we’re on the hunt for new ways to be bigger and brighter than ever before. We began in public libraries, we branched out to corporate, personal, and K-12 users, and then we met you – homeschooled families, you’re really something special.
What makes Mango Homeschool Edition (yes, we named it just for you) so perfect for your family? Mango’s the one and only trusted resource for building rapid, real-world conversational skills and measurable depth into your child’s chosen language-learning experience. With Mango, language learning is much more than a task – it’s a comprehensive, immersive, and entertaining experience. Better yet, we keep our prices straight-forward and affordable, so that your family can focus more on learning and less on budgeting. Give us a call for a price estimate – we promise we’ll make your jaw drop.
Can you tell we’re excited about Mango Homeschool? We really are. To quote Carly Rae Jepsen (Sorry, we said we were young): Hey, this is crazy, but here’s our free 14-day trial, so call us maybe.
We’re not the only ones talking about Mango’s effective and practical curriculum (although we admit, we started it): the homeschool community is buzzing about the latest and greatest language-learning resource for your curriculum. Here’s the scoop on Mango Homeschool, from users just like you.
1. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. The good folks at Hopkins Homeschool and the Schoolhouse Review Crew reviewed Mango Homeschool Edition and had this to say:
Does your homeschool curriculum include a foreign language? Just one? Or more than one? Plain old boring books, or a program that teaches you the actual language through speaking? Mango Homeschool Edition is an online program that helps you to add in that foreign language to your homeschool curriculum…over 60 foreign language courses…with your subscription!
We love that the smarty-pants over at Hopkins Homeschool and Schoolhouse Review recognized the unique access Mango Homeschool gives users. With Mango Homeschool, your language-learning journey never has to end. Focus on just one language, broken down into easy-to-learn chapters and journeys, or get acquainted with several languages at once. Our tip: read the blog’s full review and learn more about Mango’s newest superstar, Ray Ray – a five-year-old language guru who proved that our 6 years and older guideline is merely a suggestion. After all, age is just a number.
2. Heather, of A Nurse’s Wildflowers, took to her to blog and composed a perfectly thorough review of Mango Languages Homeschool Edition. A nurse, a wife, a mother of three, and much more, we’re thrilled she found the time to share some thoughts about Mango’s newest program:
The layout throughout the entire course is beautiful and clearly well done. The lessons are clean with no visual distractions. The class moves along with little chunks of language at a time and has review mixed in…the student can click to hear the pronunciation over and over if needed. There is also an option to use a microphone… the student decides when to move on.
Heather, we’re so glad you noticed. Each and every Mango course is developed by a team of experts specific to the language and culture, and we work hard to make sure our content matches our design. In this case, you can judge a book (or a program!) by its cover, and even Heather’s daughter agrees. Heather shared that her 11-year-old daughter, Tee, loved this program, and Heather was able to leave behind her daily routine of nagging Tee to do her work— Tess enjoyed spending time with Mango. We also loved hearing Heather’s suggestions on how Mango Homeschool Edition can better serve her needs and improve our service. We’re only a phone call away, and we can’t wait to hear your ideas.
The Welcome page greets you and your student each time you log in, and gives you the option to resume the lesson, repeat the lesson, or proceed to the next lesson. I love that the program remembers where you were working each time you re-enter after logging out. If we had completed a lesson, but I felt Caleb needed to review it, I simply chose to repeat the previous day’s lesson. I was thrilled to be able to have this option!
That’s right – with Mango Homeschool, parents are always in the driver’s seat. As a teacher, you’re able to control when and how your students move on in their courses, and you can track their progress with the program’s admin portal and usage tools. You can supplement your child’s lesson with our comprehensive, course curriculum outlines, available as printable PDFs to track and reinforce your child’s daily work. We also highly recommend reading Grace-Filled-Moments’ full Mango review – one little Mango-in-training, Caleb, took our coveted Pirate course and the results wildly exceed our expectations. You go, Caleb.
We feel like we just won Parent-Teacher conferences, and we won’t lie – it’s a good feeling. We’re so excited to join the homeschooled community and help enrich students’ lives with language and culture. How can Mango Homeschool Edition prepare your child for success in today’s global world? Call us up, try us out (for free!), or send us a postcard in your favorite language – we can’t wait to hear from you.
