Online Treats @ Tufts

Tufts Libraries have all kinds of things in our collections. In addition to the thousands of electronic journals, books and databases, here are a few of our other online resources that you might enjoy checking out.

Mango Languages

Designed to give users comprehensive conversational language and grammar skills. The basic course (10 lessons) focuses on polite greetings and small talk and is perfect for patrons who are planning a short trip to a foreign country, or for those who want to get a taste of a foreign language and culture. The complete course (100 lessons) is designed for patrons who already know the basics of a culture and a language, and want to increase their vocabulary, improve grammar and speak more fluently.
