New favorite tool/toy -but mostly tool- in the Enos home.
You type text into the box and it translates as you go.
We have used it to go from Spanish to English when the kids bring home a note from school.
We have used it to go from English to Spanish when we are trying to get specific information (like banking) across.
“But Camille, aren’t you using your Spanish frequently?”
“Yes! But sometimes it is very important to be sure of having accurate information. Plus, Mikee likes how fast it is. And we only use it at home. When we are out -we’re on our own baby.”
It’s a lot better than our old standard way to use the dictionary to look up individual words. The dictionary is not too helpful with verb conjugations and it messes with the continuity of the thought process.

That is our helpful tip for the day. 🙂
PS- has anyone used a program for learning another language that worked great? I am looking to help the kiddos Spanish come along a little faster.
