Learn ASL with Mango Languages

Have you ever wanted to learn American Sign Language? Now’s your chance! From Monday, Jan. 22 until Monday, Feb. 26, 2024, it will be temporarily available through the online language learning software Mango.

Mango is an interactive language database, with over 70 languages. Adapting to different learning styles, Mango uses relevant material and helpful tools, such as listening and reading activities, to help users’ knowledge grow. For the next month, Christian County Library cardholders get to test out this new language module.

We need your opinion

Help us decide whether we should permanently include ASL in our Mango subscription. Try it out and tell us your thoughts by completing this quick survey.

How to get started 

1. Create an account. To access the library’s free trial of Mango ASL, use this link. Create a unique Mango account using a personal email address. Although creating a Guest Account is an option, it will not save any progress, so we recommend making an actual account (make sure the account is created through the library’s research page link as shown below).

2. Sign in with your account. After creating your account, confirm your email address in your inbox, then log into your Mango account.

3. Pick American Sign Language as your language of choice. To find it, type “American Sign Language” in the search bar OR select “See All,” where ASL will be at the top of the list.

4. Start learning. Here’s where the fun starts. Explore the ASL modules and videos that Mango has to offer. Immerse yourself in the language, taking note of your experiences to share with us later.

Note: Mango can be used on a desktop or with a handheld personal device. To download the app for iOS devices (iPad & iPhone), download here. For Samsung and Google devices, download here. Be sure to create your account through the library’s research page link before logging on to the app. 

5. Tell us how it was. To determine if ASL is a good addition to our language database, tell us how you feel by completing this very short survey before Feb. 26, 2024.
