A bigger, better Mango is here, and we can’t stop talking about it.  On Jan. 16, we rolled out Mango Connect, the next generation of our user portal.  Mango Connect is designed to provide you with a more intuitive, user-friendly learning experience.  But that’s not the only new development we’ve got in store!  To learn more about all the ways we’re working to build a bigger, better Mango, read on…

Mango Connect and Placement Tests

Our brand new user portal, Mango Connect, is beauty and brains, form and function— plus, we’ve made it easier for you to access all the language-learning products available in your language or product of choice.  For example, just select the language you’d like to study, and you’ll be able to see all the different products available in that particular language (e.g. courses from Mango Conversations, movies from Mango Premiere, etc.).

But as we usher in the new, we must also recognize when the right time to say farewell to the old.  For those clients who still have access to Mango’s pilot product, Complete 1.0, you will notice that it has been retired with the release of Mango Connect.  Mango has grown by leaps and bounds since the release of Complete 1.0, and we want to ensure that you continue to have access to only the best, most cutting-edge products on the market.  Retiring 1.0 ensures that we can focus our energy on providing support and optimization for newer products – plus, it allows us to focus on all the other language-learning innovations that we want to bring to you in the future.

If your users are still learning with Mango Complete 1.0 – no worries!  Access to Mango’s “Classic Portal,” which links to the Complete 1.0 and Basic products, will be available till June 2nd, 2014, so your users have plenty of time to finish the course.  Or, if they’d like to switch to the newer Mango Conversations product, they can use our brand new Placement Tests to find out where you should start in the course.  Mango now has placement tests available for 17 of our most popular language courses, which allows users to find the right starting point in the course.  Just look for the Placement Test on the welcome screen when Mango Conversations launches.

Mango Conversations and Mango Premiere

Wondering what Mango Conversations is all about?  We’re optimizing the learning experience by consolidating our Basic and Complete 2.0 courses into a single updated product: Mango Conversations.  No need to worry – all the content you were able to access through Basic and Complete 2.0 will still be there, it’ll just be housed under the new Mango Conversations name.

And if you haven’t checked it out already, we’d like to invite you to the premiere of a lifetime: Mango Premiere™, the first and only language learning resource to teach through feature films and other foreign language multimedia.  Mango Premiere™ is unlike anything else on the market today, combining education with entertainment to provide users with an undeniably unique learning experience.  Mango Premiere™ will be available to all libraries and institutions that have a full Mango subscription.  If you have questions about Mango Premiere™, get in touch with us at support@mangolanguages.com and we can help!

The Same Great Mango, Only Better

We may be upgrading our interface and our expanding our offerings, but everything else that you know and love about Mango will remain exactly the same.  Same great customer service, same respected methodology – it’s all just a little bigger, and a little brighter. And if you have any questions, we’ll be here.  Just contact us at 877.MANGO-11 or support@mangolanguages.com.
