New Web Resource – Powerspeak Languages

For the next year, you can take advantage of two different language learning resources through our website. You might already be familiar with Mango Languages which has been a staple of our offerings since 2009. Now we are adding Powerspeak Languages. Unlike Mango which has over 70 language programs designed mainly for travelers, Powerspeak Languages has only ten but these are at a deeper, richer level for those who want to delve deeper into a new language and culture. I am very excited about having both, and in a year we will see if there is a reason to keep one over the other or continue with both. Your feedback is, as always, highly valued.

The Powerspeak Languages are Spanish, Italian, French, German, Russian, Mandarin, Japanese, Korean, English for speakers of Spanish, and English for speakers of Mandarin.
