The thing is, we are at the stage when our technology is sophisticated enough that there are actually apps you can install on your smartphones that almost seem to act like a universal translator!
Talking Translator apps can convert words and sentences from English to another language, or vice versa. You type your phrase into the app, which quickly translates your text. If you’re not sure how to pronounce the phrase, pressing a button triggers the app to speak the words aloud.
These are not to replace the actual learning of the lauguage,
There are too many situations where a word has several translations. Did you know that “set” in English has 464 meanings in the Oxford English dictionary, depending on the context? And “run” has 396? You can’t just pick one, even if it comes up as a likely translation a third of the time.
