Today I started thinking about my friend Goo Translator. So I call the well-known Google Translator how many and many times it has helped me.
I have baptized it as a Goo Translator because when I open it daily through the Google search engine, it is enough for me to type #google translator # goo translator #google translator ... and find it for me. That saved me a few microseconds. But well, the first name exposed is the one I like the most, and that is what I call the translators' translator to give a bit of saltiness to life.
Who does not know the Google translator?
In my morning reflection I thought about my friend Goo and that is really milk! It is a powerful mega tool and above is Free. I can not believe that there are still people who do not use this translator on a daily basis.
Mr. Goo is the easiest to use and is our tireless virtual assistant the 24 hours of the day, the 365 days of the year. You write a word to the left of the screen and it magically translates to the right side. Easiest impossible.
In my personal experience, he has been helping me for a lot of years and is one of the architects of having learned Russian more or less on my own. It has also helped me a lot with English and we have written a lot of corporate letters that have even made me earn some money. Yes, without knowing too much English you can write and communicate in this language perfectly with the Google translator. In Russian, it is a bit more complicated due to the complexity of its grammar.
The free method to learn Russian
I put so much emphasis on the use of the Google translator because my readers often ask me about free methods to learn Russian. The answer is right under your nose. Obviously, the approach (free) is already wrong because to learn a language like Russian requires a lot of effort, dedication and ultimately is a serious learning that in many cases is achieved over the years.
Any free method to learn something will never be optimal if our objectives are ambitious and if we want to obtain an adequate and progressive learning curve. Learning something wrong often does not help.
But hey, there are times when we can not afford to spend a penny, so we have to look for life and this is where the Goo Translator, our best linguistic ally, will help us achieve our goals and ask for nothing in return. If we use it well, we can even find a language like Russian fast. And whoever says Russian, says Mandarin Chinese.
Do you want to study Russian for free or any other language? Use the Goo Translator. It's free, free, free ...
How can you learn Russian for free with the Google translator?
Idea 1 # Start conversations with native Russians translating in real time
Sign in the social network Vkontakte (Russian Facebook). Search Russian or Russian native profiles with whom you would like to start a conversation. Do not you know Russian? It's okay, you can learn and maintain complex dialogues today with the help of the Google translator. I show you below.
We tried a small invented dialogue:
– Hi how are you?
My name is Juan.
It is so cold in your country?
The Goo Translator automatically translates the following:
Привет как дела
Меня зовут Хуан.
В вашей стране очень холодно?
Hears! Well, the translation is not wrong. A native Russian would realize that you are not from the country, because you start with absolute confidence one by one saying hello in Russian (Priviet) and then you treat it in translation. But it is a more than optimal option to engage in a first dialogue and it is perfectly understood.
Also, if you do not know read in Cyrillic, the translator himself makes a phonetic transcription for you to read with Latin letters what you have put:
- Privet kak dela.
Menya zovut Khuan.
V vashey strane ochen 'kholodno?
Well now that we have presented ourselves, we should expect a response from the interlocutor and do the same in reverse
Света пишет ... (Sveta writes ...)
- Я не хочу с тобой разговаривать
Imagine that your supposed friend Sveta has answered this phrase. We copy it to the clipboard and enter it into the Google translator.
From the beginning, you can read it with the phonetic transcription from Russian to Latin letters:
- YA ne khochu s toboy razgovarivat '
And boy ... there has been no luck. The instantaneous translation is revealed to us ...
- I do not want to talk to you
But hey, this would be a first full conversation in Russian to be proud of.
As you can see, you can speak Russian and any language without having to study for years.
Using this method I have learned many notions of Russian and not only that ... I live in Moscow and I am married!
Now tell me that Goo is not a good person ...
Idea 2 # Brainstorming of phrases and translated words
If you use the first idea of the translated online conversations, I assure you that in a matter of weeks you will have many tables to get by in the Russian language or in any other language. But now we go further, we have to learn vocabulary.
My proposal is that you study against more words you can, the better. If you know many words, even if you don't know how to combine sentences, you can always speak in an Indian plan and they will understand you. I used to study dry stick dictionary lists. It's boring, I won't tell you no. But in just a few days you can learn 500 or 1000 words without too much effort.
Also Russian and Spanish have many words in common that you will have less than an afternoon to learn them.
The fact is that if we do not like to study random words directly or in alphabetical order from a dictionary, we can think for ourselves what words we would like to learn and in the context we want.
For example, if I go to a bakery where they speak Russian, I could prepare the translation of words like: bread, muffin, money, package, change, thanks etc ...
We put these words in the Google translator by making a small list and get the translation and instant transcription:
thank you spasibo tebe
From this list of words two of them would not serve us: rulet and izmeneniye because they are translated in another context or in an inappropriate way. That's why it will always be better if we want to make sure that a word is correct at 100%, to verify it with other translators or dictionaries. For example, I like to use a free online dictionary well-known from the web dictionary.ru
In this case if we introduce you to dictionary.ru the word suspected of being incorrect #Roll, will give us another more specific result:
# Хлебец (jlebetz) о # Булка (bulka) they would be much more accurate words. But as you see, dictionary.ru He is not as kind as Goo and assumes that you already know how to read Russian. That's why he does not show you the transcript. But you can always copy, paste and return to Google. It's what you have to study Russian for free. It's a pain in the ass! (excuse me)
That's why it's better buy an online course and study properly with a professional apprenticeship, with cards, videos, photos, stories, audios etc ...
Idea #3 Translate news, posts, stories and complex texts
Now that we know how to start conversations and discover new words in Russian or in any other language with Google's translator, it's time to move on to translate phrases, compound texts, poems, songs etc ...
By the way, translating songs you learn Russian very well. Especially watching video clips, since they are beautiful, beautiful people come out, we listen to their voice, they inspire and motivate us.
In addition the phrases they use in the songs are simple and full of meaning that will be very easy for us to remember. So take, for example, the famous songs of Russian singers It will be a good source to start translating sentences and texts with full meaning.
But I will propose something different to accelerate our free learning. We are going to translate Russian newspaper news online. The good thing is that there are many, they are constantly updated, they are short and they help us to stay informed with a developed, neutral, formal and intelligent language. It is very easy to open a web page and copy the text to the clipboard to take it to our trusted translator. In this case Mr. Goo.
We take for example a very famous online newspaper called gazeta.ru
The first news that comes to me is the following:
I copy the text and paste it into the translator as we have learned:
Text copied in Russian:
Непрозрачные зарплаты: чиновники тоже плачут
Рустем Фаляхов 11: 45
Зарплаты чиновников растут неравномерно. Так, в большинстве случаев нет жесткой привязки премии к результатам деятельности госслужащих. В результате премирование стало инструментом поддержки лояльности к руководству, считают эксперты РАНХиГС.
Google translation from Russian to Spanish:
Opaque salaries: officials also cry
Rustem Falyakhov 11: 45
The salaries of officials are growing unevenly. Therefore, in most cases there is no rigid relationship between the award and the results of the activities of public officials. As a result, the bonds have become a tool to support loyalty to leadership, say RANEPA experts.
Not bad. It has translated decently. Now what we should do is compare, look at the phrases, keywords and learn little by little by translating news. Surely there are things that the Google translator will not translate well at all, especially with the Russian language, but has improved and continues to improve every day. In general, I like how it translates.
If you propose some daily translation exercises methodically, you will surely make a lot of progress in studying the Russian language. But always, regardless of redundancy, it is better to opt for these free systems as a complement to the learning taken, either in a school or from home with a digital learning software or app.
The good thing about the google translator is that it is free, fast and automatic. Copy, paste and obtain result. Based on the comparison and using our intuition, we can learn a lot and very fast.
Idea #4 Write our own texts, translate them and combine ideas
Actually the #1 idea is the most important one.
Contact with Russian native people and build relationships and friendships. If we already have the Google translation assistant for free, imagine what power it will have if we also have a friendly person interested in us to learn.
The most important thing now is to learn to write Russian. Also when you write on your own you are forced to think, many parts of your brain are awakened and the information is better assimilated.
Write your first love letter in Russian!
Well, it must not necessarily be about love, but I wrote nice things in Russian to the woman who is now. Who is not motivated to learn a language if there is a lovely damsel waiting for you!
Well, at the beginning if we do not know how to write in Russian, then the Google translator will remain our first choice. So we will have to write in Spanish all our feelings and cross our fingers so that the romantic of Goo fulfills his task XD:
Dear Ekaterina. My sweet Russian princess. I write these words to you because I keep thinking about you day and night. I would like to see the light of your eyes very soon, in person. I have good news, I will go to Moscow very soon to see you and finally we can meet and be together. I hope we are together forever. The truth is that I'm in love with you. I love you my love.
We take all this amalgam of romantic inspiration and put it in the spit of Google translations that will return the following:
Уважаемая Екатерина. Моя милая русская принцесса. Я пишу эти слова тебе, потому что я думаю о тебе день и ночь. Я хотел бы увидеть свет ваших глаз очень скоро, лично. У меня хорошие новости, я очень скоро уеду в Москву, чтобы встретиться с вами, и наконец мы сможем встретиться и быть вместе. Я надеюсь, что мы вместе навсегда. Правда в том, что я влюблен в тебя. Я люблю тебя, моя любовь.
Hahaha. That's when she answers ...
- Я не хочу с тобой разговаривать
And the end of history…
Well, don't be discouraged. Maybe he laughs, he finds the love letter very funny, and gives you a chance. Although I recommend studying on your own beautiful phrases and compliments in Russian.
And is that the Google translator is a very powerful tool for learning languages, but how are you going to use it and the results you are going to get according to your interests, they only depend on you and your ingenuity.
If you treat him with love, Mr. Translator Goo can accompany you until your wedding day and beyond.
Greetings from Moscow dear Russian Lover, my name is Ory and if you want to leave a comment then I will be happy to read it.
