You're Invited: Mango Homeschool Twitter Party

By Mango Languages |   Aug 25, 2014 10:13:30 AM

Homeschool families, we love you. Ever since we tapped into the wonderful world of homeschooling, we can’t stay away. You’re enthusiastic, devoted, and innovative – and those are three of our favorite things.

We want to hang out more, and this Tuesday, we’re throwing a big bash in your honor. The Homeschool interwebs are all abuzz about our Twitter party, and we’re so psyched. Consider the virtual room decked out with orange and green crepe paper and Mango-shaped balloons – and trust us, the party favors will be legendary (spoiler alert: we’re giving out three totally free one-year Mango® subscriptions!).

If you haven’t already, mark your calendars; because your Tuesday evening is booked. Pour a glass a wine, bake a cake, make a Mango smoothie – whip up the indulgence of your choice and join us for a family-friendly event focused around homeschooling, language learning, and you.

Hosted by the iHomeschool Network on behalf of Mango Languages (hey, that’s us!), the event begins at 8 p.m. EST, so hop on Twitter and follow @Mangolanguages and @iHomeschoolnet to join the hour-long conversation – it’ll be fun, interactive, and full of free, fabulous Mango prizes. We’re celebrating learning, language, and culture, and you’re the guest of honor.

We’ll be answering all of your burning questions on how to build real-world language skills, boost cultural confidence, and instill a lifelong love of languages in your children. With over 60 languages to choose from, language learning can be the adventure of a lifetime, and we want to show you just how much Mango can do for your family. This Twitter party is all about swapping ideas and gathering your feedback; plus we'll be awarding free Mango swag to the coolest language-learners on the planet: our homeschool families (shh – don’t tell!).

There ain’t no party like a homeschool party, because a homeschool party don’t stop. We’re a dedicated and passionate group who wants to change the world by enriching lives with language and culture, and we can’t wait to hear from you. Mango is fun, effective, and 100% kid-friendly – so don’t be surprised if your little ones demand an invitation to the party.

Bring them along to share their thoughts and ideas and introduce them to the big, bright world of language learning with Mango. Tweet us your language-learning hopes, dreams, and aspirations – and be sure to trademark all of your correspondence with the hashtag #ihsnet so that we’re all speaking the same language. Homeschool friends, we’ll see you on Twitter this Tuesday!
