A little over a year ago I made a vow to try to learn Polish. Apart from the stated reason and the fact that it would be interesting, I hoped it might be helpful in school which, I’m pleased to say it has on one or two occasions. Unfortunately, I have not had a teacher for some months, but continue to struggle on. So, you can imagine how overjoyed I was to discover a new, impressive translation website called Lingro. Covering English, French, German, Italian, Polish & Spanish, it allows bilateral translation through its dictionary. When a word is not yet in a dictionary, users are invited to offer a translation. You can also use it to open a file or a web page. Although an instant translation of the entire content does not appear (that would be too much to hope for) any word you click will be translated into the language you have chosen. Can you see a use for this in class?
This strikes me as an extremely useful site! May I suggest if you’d like quickly to try it out: Click here -which should allow you to view the home page of the Polish version of Wikipedia – through Lingro; set the dictionary to Polish into English (although this setting may have been saved); find and click the word Strona – and the translation Page should pop up before long.
