Google's new contribution to the EFL & ESL Classrooms (help or hinder)
"we can see this is meant to be a translation service which offers both volunteers and professional translators... and I suppose at least the professionals will want to get paid. In that regards, the service is in the field of sites like Click2Translate.com (a service by the company which Tony works for, incidentally, and which I’m often using for some of my sites)." - Blogoscoped
Though the website is still experimental and not open to the public, one can see the future implications that it may have in the classroom. Advantages for a foreign teacher include having documents translated for administration, writing notes to parents, translating homework instructions or simple communicating while living abroad.
