Little Pim’s 15 languages include Spanish, French, Hebrew, and ESL English.

Both resources require Javascript and Adobe Flash Player, and can be accessed from our list of Research Tools by selecting the Language subject area. Mango Languages can be accessed at any of HCLS’s six branches, or from school or home with your library card number. Add Mango Languages to your collection of language learning tools!
