Google is in the middle of experimenting with a new, free program that immerses you into your foreign language of choice.
If you're trying to learn Spanish, but are stuck behind a desk, your foreign language skills are going to languish.
But check out Google's new "Language Immersion" feature. It will mix in foreign vocabulary words into your English web pages so you can start learning words and phrases through context...the closest thing to immersion.
To begin, you'll need to use Google Chrome to browse the web. It's free and easy to download. From there, visit the Chrome web-store to find the "Language Immersion" application. Click the large blue button to "add to chrome" and then you're ready to start. A little icon will appear next to your search bar and that's where you can choose your language and your immersion level, from novice to expert.
After you turn the feature on, you'll start noticing that occasional words on the web pages you browse will be translated into one of Google's 64 available languages.
An easy, fun new way to improve your vocabulary. Adios!
