Bonjour, International Education Week -- Meet Mango

In celebration of International Education Week November 14-17, Sims Memorial Library is teaming up with the International Initiatives Office. The purpose of IEW is to spotlight the benefits of international education and emphasize student awareness of the world's cultures.  

  • International Photo Contest at Sims Library – The photo exhibit features images from around the world by students and faculty involved in international education or exchange programs. Come see these incredible photographs and vote for your favorite.
  • Learning a foreign language has never been easier, now that Sims Library has Mango Languages. Mango Languages is a self-paced, web-based program that gives users a quick introduction to a language and culture through the conversational skills. Come to the lobby and look for our Mango Languages display. We will be demonstrating Mango Languages throughout the day during International Education Week.
  • Also on Monday, Librarian Angela Dunnington, Head of Access Services, will be demonstrating Mango Languages during International Night (November 14) in Student Union Ballroom. 

The Department of Languages and Communication and Sims Library are happy to introduce this new resource available to all students, faculty, and staff thanks to funding from a Large Student Tech Fee grant.  Mango Languages offers courses in over 70 languages, 21 foreign films, 31 specialty courses (such as Legal and Medical Spanish, Business Mandarin), and over 17 specialized ESL courses.
