CRITIQUE: It keeps track of the courses you’ve taken and how many hours you’ve put in. You can go at your own pace and you can redo a lesson if you need to work on that particular section more. There is also a translation section. They have recently added a mobile application. I find this very convenient and accessible. I have found the lessons I’ve taken easy to follow and effective. I just recently discovered that my library had Mango Languages Online. I will definitely be taking advantage of this application in the future.
