Avast, ye scurvy lubber! International Talk like a Pirate day has just come over the horizon, and is but a handful o' fortnights away — Sept. 19, same as always.
Lucky for your sorry aft, the Pikes Peak Library District offers free subscriptions to the Mango language learning tool. Mango recently announced a special course in Pirate to polish your skills. All ye need is a district library card! The software is available at most PPLD branches, or even on your Android or iOS device. The Mango website has a mapping tool to find the Mango-powered library nearest your port-of-call.
Easiest of all, Mango is offering its courses in Pirate for free on its website (for a limited time). So you've got no excuse for not participating this September. Bully!
