Language Learning Tools from MCPL
Access to these services requires a library card from Montgomery County Public Libraries and a PIN. If you have access problems, please call Ask-a-Librarian at 240-777-0001.
In addition to these online or downloadable tools, see the library catalog for books, CD sets, and videos you can borrow to help you learn a language.
If you want the software to keep track of your progress, you should set up a user name and password in Mango. It is not required that you do so, however.
Mango Languages has apps for Apple devices and for Android devices. To use the app, first log in to the Mango website with your library card number, and create your Mango account. Then download the app to your device.
