Mango Premiere Goes Wild: National Geographic’s Wild Chronicles.

March 6, 2015 / by Jillian Rodriguez


Language learners, are you ready to go wild? We’ve teamed up with National Geographic to bring you closer than ever to the pulse of the planet and all of its wildest wonders ― all while you use Mango Premiere’s signature methodology to learn Spanish.

If you’ve been itching to delve into the depths of Antarctica, climb the heights of Mount Everest, and improve your Spanish skills, you’ve come to the right place. Mango Premiere is debuting its first two episodes of National Geographic’s Wild Chronicles, in which host Boyd Watson leads learners through 30 minutes of adventure-packed globe trotting, offering a rare in-depth look at the state of our natural world. Whether you’re a nature hobbyist, a language-loving science teacher (or a science-loving language teacher!), or a local librarian with a wild streak, Mango Premiere’s new Wild Chronicles will unlock your sense of adventure and add brand-new thrills to your language-learning journey.

These new short features introduce viewers to some of nature’s best-kept secrets ― you’ll come face-to-face with mysterious sea creatures, endangered animals, native populations, and breathtaking plant life. Students will be spellbound, and older learners will be scrambling to renew their passports.

The best part: You’ll take in nature’s finest via Mango Premiere’s integrated learning system. That means that besides the adorable monkeys, sweeping landscapes, scientific discoveries, and inspiring stories, users are able to learn Spanish by fully interacting with the information presented. Learn through cultural insights, interactive words and phrases, voice comparison, color mapping, and bite-sized scenes that are as entertaining to watch as they are educational.

Wild Chronicles is a great solution for teachers looking to combine language learning with educational content in the classroom. It's also a great centerpiece for a theme night at the library, or to promote Mango to new groups on campus — travel-abroad students and environmental-studies majors are the perfect audience! For now, we've released episodes 3 and 4, and we have two more in the works. If you love Wild Chronicles as much as we do, we’ll be putting out even more. Each episode features unique stories and travels to a different facet of the world, so you’ll always be learning something new.

Ready for your Spanish language-learning to go wild? Log onto Mango Connect and search Wild Chronicles to check out our two new National Geographic features. If you like what you see, drop us a line and let us know that you want more. Let the adventures begin!
