My new method to learn a new language
1) Set your Google home page to iGoogle skin.
2) Search Google widgets and find the media RSS feeds in the language of your choice. Add them to your iGoogle page. For example currently I’m following Le Monde feed which displays 9 news headers and summaries from France on a daily basis.
3) Click a link and go to the news page in the original language.
4) Open Google Translate in another tab and see the translations of all words and phrases you don’t know, including the way they are pronounced in the target language! Just copy and paste the stuff you don’t know from one tab to another. It’s as simple as that.
It’s all free, thanks to Google 🙂
