New Google translate Chrome extension allows you to learn a language and surf HUBB
Google just came out with an interesting google translate extension for their Chrome browser:
It allows you to surf the web and the extension will translate a few words of each article you are reading on the fly into another language of your choosing. You can adjust a slider to beginner, intermediate or advanced to determine the percentage of words on a webpage that get translated.
I just tried it on the HUBB in Spanish and set the dial to intermediate and am already learning more words. The key here is context. Seeing the words in context allows you to figure them out and slowly immerse yourself in the language. The words you can't figure out are flipped back to english when you click on them and you can even have them spoken to learn how they are pronounced.
Hope someone finds this useful.
