Practice Spanish

I don’t know about you but for me, maintaining any level of Spanish while not in Paraguay is difficult. Google now has a new app that is interesting.  Is it effective?  I don’t know.  Language Immersion for Chrome is designed to help you maintain and build vocabulary.  Here is what Google says about it:

Language Immersion for Chrome is an experimental extension that aims to simulate the experience of being immersed in a foreign language. By switching certain words and phrases from English into a language of your choice, the websites you already visit can provide a way to experience the world from a different perspective.

- Choose from all 64 languages currently supported by Google Translate.
- Novice-to-fluent skill settings let you immerse at your own pace.
- Click on a translated word to switch it back to English.
- Roll-over a translated word to hear it pronounced.
Note: Language Immersion for Chrome is very much an experiment. That means the translations won’t always  be 100% accurate, and it probably won’t turn you into a language genius overnight. That being said, we think it’s pretty cool to be able see the web from a different perspective, and we’re excited for everyone to give it a try.
