Never Forget a Useful Phrase Again – Introducing Phrasebook for Google Translate is the title of Google’s new post about a neat new feature they’re adding.
It basically allows you “save” frequently used phrases.
It seems to me they’re overhyping the new feature as a language-learning tool:
Phrasebook for Google Translate jumpstarts this slow learning process by allowing you to save the most useful phrases to you, for easy reference later on, exactly when you need them. By revisiting the useful phrases in your Phrasebook from time to time, you can turn any brief translation into lasting knowledge.
What it can be useful for, though, is as a timesaver for teachers who might use it with parents or with very early English Language Learners for basic communication purposes.
