Google has released a new tool that allows you to learn English for free on mobile devices with the Android operating system. This feature provides real-time feedback, making it possible to improve foreign language skills in short sessions of between three and five minutes.
This feature is activated when users use the search engine to perform translations in English. During these interactive sessions, they faced questions from everyday life and practiced using words in real situations. Google will analyze your pronunciation and provide example sentences where the words match.
This approach to language learning through a Google app is similar to what Duolingo has been offering for years. The tool includes a calendar for scheduling practice sessions and a record of words they’ve learned or practiced, with a color-coded system to rate their pronunciation.
Google collaborates with teachers and English teaching experts to provide personalized feedback. The tool uses authentic contexts and relies on repetition to increase learning retention. Users receive feedback on the correctness and understanding of their answers.
If they came across an unknown word or phrase, they were able to translate it individually. Because some words can have different meanings depending on the context in which they are used, Google takes into account the relationship between words and sentences.
This functionality will be integrated into the Google app on Android in the coming days, so you’ll want to keep it updated, and it’s available to users in Argentina, Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela, India, and Indonesia. Although the tech company did not commit to a specific date, it promised to expand it to more countries in the future.
