Today I found two new language learning tools. The first Mango Languages, offers a large number of free services including MP3’s (audio) of native language speakers. Mango also offers Phonetics in a color coded and MP3 format to help
users learn pronunciation of the sounds unique to each
language. Mango also has quiz formats similar to many other language learning tools. Click the Mango image to watch a video demonstration of all of Mango’s features.
Babbel is a language learning tool with a rather unique option, social networking. Babbel offers many good learning tools, quizzes, phonetics guides, and audio recordings. Babbel’s best feature is its social networking option. Users can find other people who are learning the same language or find users who are native speakers of the language they’re trying to learn. Language teachers can use the social network to share lesson ideas with other language teachers.
