Unique Words Icon  

Unique words: The number under “Unique” indicates the total number of unique words (excluding repeated words) used in the current Listening or Reading activity.

New Words Icon  

New words: The number under “New” indicates the total number of new words not previously covered in the preceding Mango conversations lessons. Click on “New” to view, hear, and learn these new vocabulary words before or during the activity.

Reveal Text Icon  

Reveal Text Icon: In the Listening activities you will see an icon with several horizontal lines. Wherever this icon appears, click it to reveal the text associated with the listening material.
