Mango and Udemy are great mobile-friendly resources for those just getting started and for those that just need a refresher. They are also great alternatives if you’re tired of the local, hostile green owl.
Mango offers 70+ languages, structured with lessons, exercises and clear goals. In addition, they have “Mango Movies” that incorporate what you’ve learned in lessons to a film with dialog and relevant cultural content.
