Learn to Speak Pirate!
Ahoy! I'll let you in on a little secret - the Brooks Public Library and the Shortgrass Library System will once again will be offering a free language learning program through our databases called Mango Languages. Mango teaches practical conversation and cultural awareness for the world’s most popular languages.
In celebration of Mango, I wanted to share with you one of the coolest languages that you can learn from Mango: Pirate! Aye me hearties, you too can learn to parley with any and all the gentlemen o' fortune that you meet. (Note: "Gentlemen of Fortune" Pirate for "Pirate". Arr, isn't learning fun?)
According to Mango's website, in just a few minutes, you'll learn:
•A few choice names to call your lazy excuse of a crew.
•The finer points of swashbuckling.
•A bit about Pirate history, and the part it played in forming modern democracy.
•All sorts of practical Pirate lingo!
