Putting Google to the Test in Translation

Have you ever wondered about using translation machines for your foreign language classes?  You’d better know what you’re doing (grammatically speaking)!

While these are certainly useful tools for helping you understand a website or a page written in another language, they are not able to produce something you would want to turn in.  As the examples from the New York Times article show, it will certainly be easy for your instructors to differentiate between original work and a machine translation.  See the article at:

Spain’s Cultural Ambassadors Program

Each year, the Embassy of Spain recruits up to 1,200 junior and senior university students to participate in their nine month “Cultural Ambassador” program.  In exchange for sharing your knowledge of the English language and American culture for 12-16 hours in a K-12 classroom environment (under the supervision of a teacher), they pay a monthly stipend (approximately €700) and provide full medical insurance.  Among other things, it is a great opportunity to further your skills in Spanish, and travel a bit through Spain and the rest of Europe.
