Quick Tip: Get into ‘Google Translate’ conversation mode.

Learn multiple languages at once

This is a handy app to have for profs using iPhones or iPads in the classroom. You can now translate words and phrases in over 60 different languages ‘on the fly’. So, let’s say, for example, you want to say “good job” when you hand back an assignment to an international student from China. Open up Google Translate on your iPhone/iPad, key in the phrase, and then listen to the audio for pronunciation. When you hand the assignment back to the student, you can say both, “Good job”, and “Hǎo gōngzuò”. Nice touch. Try it out and start to ‘wow’ your diverse student population with your newly acquired language skills!
