Celebrate Indigenous Cultures with Mango

Celebrate indigenous and international cultures by learning a new language through Mango Languages. Choose from over 10 languages (including English!). Log in through the Langsdale databases and help fight Monolingualism!



Some facts about bilingualism:
  • 21 percent of Americans speak more than one language at home
  • Bilingual children hit language milestones at the same age as monolingual children, so exposing children to a second language at an early age will enhance their language skills
  • Being bilingual enhances your ability to concentrate and focus on a task while tuning out irrelevant information
  •  Biligualism can postpone the onset of dementia and Alzheimer’s by increasing blood and oxygen flow to the brain
