Mango Languages, a digital-first language-education solution in K-12 and Higher-Ed, corporations, library systems, and government agencies worldwide is responding to the global COVID-19 crisis by offering its classroom products to eligible educators for free through the end of the 2019-2020 school year.
“As this international crisis endures, and entire school systems are closing, we realized we have something to give that responds directly to the strains schools and educators are feeling as they are forced to make a rapid transition to distance learning.” says Jason Teshuba, Mango Languages CEO.
The Mango Classroom product is built around Mango’s flagship language-learning app. The Mango app teaches language and culture through proven methodologies that build conversational-ready language skills in more than 70 world languages and over 20 English courses and is accessible across mobile and desktop platforms with features that allow for offline learning.
Mango Classroom provides additional materials for educator support in their Spanish, French, German, Japanese, Chinese, Italian, and English for Spanish Speakers courses that align with universal standards of proficiency. Exclusive educator features and materials include teacher lesson plans and student workbooks which provide activities for classroom engagement, while admin features include progress and usage tracking, and automatically graded assessments. The program integrates via group provisioning, rostering, SSO, lesson deep-linking, and Clever.
Students and teachers will have full accessibility to online resources that include staff and student video tutorials and webinars.
