FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich., April 29, 2010 — Mango Languages today announced it is now offering a new interactive online version of the popular Little Pim language learning series to libraries across the United States and Canada. The announcement was made by Beverly Cornell, director of marketing for Mango.
Launched in 2007, Little Pim is an award-winning program designed specifically to introduce foreign languages to young children. The series is available in ten foreign languages (Spanish, French, Mandarin Chinese, Italian, Japanese, Hebrew, English/ESL (with Spanish or English subtitles), German, Russian and Arabic). The children’s language program “stars” a lovable animated panda and features native speakers, excellent pacing, varied activities and great concept groupings to make the language learning process fun and easy.
Commenting on the addition of Little Pim to the company’s menu of products, Mango Chief Executive Officer Jason Teshuba said, “We reviewed the Little Pim products and were impressed. Learning a new language is much easier at an early age and the Little Pim series is a very effective tool to make this happen. We are pleased to be able to offer this innovative product to our libraries and look forward to expanding its reach through the introduction of an online interactive version this summer.”
