Talk like a pirate - on the go!
So, we've all been in this situation:
Your luxury yacht has run aground on an unmarked coral reef far off the coast of your private Caribbean island and pirates are bearing down. Effective communication is the only thing standing between you and a walk down the plank.
What's a captain to do? Well, if you're a savvy CRRL patron you can use your Android smartphone, iPhone, or iPod touch to brush up on your Pirate language skills with Mango Languages' free mobile app.
Yes, you can practice your Pirate.
If you're a landlubber, you might want to try Chinese (Cantonese & Mandarin), Farsi, French, Japanese, French, Italian or one of over thirty other languages (including English as a Second Language courses).
