- Use it as a dictionary- In my class, students are not allowed to translate full sentences of text, because I teach Spanish 3 and they need to apply their language skills. I allow students to look-up words that they don’t understand in Google Translate.
- As a tool for ELL students- This year I worked with an English Language Learner (ELL) student. She was struggling in Math because with Common Core her textbook is full of word problems. She couldn’t read the problem to get to the problem solving. We got her a digital copy of her Math textbook and she was able to copy and paste the problems into Google Translate and then work on them.
- Pronunciation tool- Second language learners struggle with how to pronounce certain words. I had them type the word in Google Translate and click on the speaker icon. While not exactly a native speaker voice, it allowed students to listen and repeat the words as many times as needed.
