International Talk Like a Pirate Day is September 19!
Do you know the difference between “me matey” and “me hearty?” A “lass” and a “wench?”
If not, we have the perfect program for you, Mango Languages! Mango is a language learning database that is free to Newport Library card holders. It has lessons for studying dozens of languages online, including Pirate!
Just log in to Mango with your Newport Library card and PIN, and click on the link to Start Learning.
You can scroll through a series of lessons, and become fluent in Pirate in no time!
Of course, Mango also has courses in other languages from all over the world—Spanish and Danish, Yiddish and Finnish, Croatian and Korean—there are 63 languages in all!
