Here is your chance to star in your own Mango movie…the options are endless. Every day you are interacting with the Mango Languages software and we want to see how creative you are…we know you will blow us away with your productions.
We’re talking flip videos, phone videos, professional videos–anything that records and makes a movie!
You can have a script or improvise it. This is all up to you and your imagination!
1. Tutorial video on how to use Mango – we prefer real people not actors
2. How Mango has helped your foreign language skills – let’s see them in action
3. Mango Commercial – share why Mango is the best
4. Mango at your library video – show patrons using it and hopefully loving it (variation using it with your family at home)
5. Funny video about Mango – you could even include real Mangoes in some fun way!

All we ask is that you upload them to YouTube and share the link with us by posting it on our Fan Page. Our fans and the Mango staff will be judging your videos, and the top three videos will get bragging rights, lots of fun Mango goodies, and a surprise.
Are you ready to be a star? The academy is waiting.
This is a great video discussing how time is perceived differently by various cultures. When we learn about foreign languages and cultures, one of the largest differences is the concept of time. Watch this interesting video to learn more.
How do you perceive time? Why do you think you perceive time that way?
Late last Friday – a few Mango Languages staffers sat down and had a couple drinks while they practiced pronunciation of the “th” sound based on a Learn English Pronunciation exercise we found on the internet. Note…this is not the way we teach English!
The results a very funny video. Check it out and let us know what you think of our English pronunciation!!
Last Saturday I had the pleasure of speaking to young entrepreneurs at Start Up Weekend in Detroit. There were about 20 potential business ideas that were pitched on the first day, and the field was narrowed down to about 8 ideas through a voting process. A group was formed for each of the selected ideas with the goal of creating a business plan to take the idea to the next level. To be honest, I wasn’t expecting much because there was such a short period of time for the whole idea to be fleshed out and presented. However there were two groups I talked to in more detail…I was very impressed and thought the groups and the ideas had some real potential.
Start Up Weekend is a fairly new event in Detroit, I can see this becoming much larger in the next few years. It’s exactly what Michigan needs right now!
A new desk? You might wonder why would this be newsworthy…well it is a TreadDesk.
Yes…such a thing exists. You can walk and work at the same time. What a concept? We actually have a couple in the office. And we may get a few more for meetings.
We had a little fun late one Friday afternoon. We thought we would use marshmallows to practice pronunciation and articulation. It got a little crazy and VERY funny!
