Program Description

Event Details

Would you like to learn a bit of Dari or Pashto to chat with your new neighbors, clients, or potential friends? Mango, a language-learning tool you can access for free with your library card, has lessons in both! You can use Mango from anywhere with an internet connection, but if you'd like the structure of a reliable weekly study session or some help using the software, come to the library on Tuesdays and spend some time learning the language of your choice! We'll meet weekly through the end of April, and if there's interest, we can continue longer. You don't have to arrive on time or stay the whole hour. Bring your own device and headphones or use the library's.
