google translate and language learning

This video explaining google translate is quite relevant to language learning. Our brains are better than computers at discovering patterns.Our brains are also better at discovering patterns than learning rules. The odd bit of grammar or vocabulary review can always help us become more attentive, but mostly we just need a lot of exposure to the language.

  1. Interesting video. I personally use google translate sometimes as many as 2 hours a day for help learning languages. The days of dictionaries are gone.. I sold all mine to a used book store as they’re now just paperweights. Thanks for the post!
