How can I use Google Translate in my classroom?

Whether you’re teaching a world language course or working with English Language Learners, Google Translate can be a very useful tool because, among other things, it strives for accuracy. The ability to see examples of translations in context and the audio support are both great features — when they work. In many cases, students may be able to improve their understanding of a language, as well as pronunciation.

Also, because it can translate entire documents and websites, Google Translate gives teachers a fast and easy tool for communication, not only with students but also with parents and the greater school community. Meeting people in their native language can go a long way to promote better participation and learning. When used with an ELL class, the site can help give kids access to learning content, as well as the ability to work at the level of their English-speaking peers. – Common Sense Education
