Talk Like a Pirate Day is September 19th!

Ahoy, mateys! Did ye know that next Wednesday, September 19th be Talk Like a Pirate Day? Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr ye ready? 

If not, you can brush up on your Pirate speak by heading to our Mango Languages database.  To get there, first head to our website, HCPL.net.  Click on the Databases tab and then select “Languages”.  Click on the Mango Languages database.  You will have to enter your library card number to access Mango Languages outside of the library. 

Once in, you will be prompted to either log in or create a profile.  Creating a profile is good if you want to track your progress on learning a language, but it’s probably unnecessary if all you want to do is learn Pirate speak.  Instead you can just select “Start Learning”.  Choose the Pirate “foreign course”, launch it, select a lesson, and yo-ho-ho you’re good to go!
