  1. Google translate is helpful with word per word translation and with regular expressions or sayings. However, in translating a whole sentence or longer statements, I would not recommend using it. Google translate is not programmed with the different sentence structures of every language. My students in Korea attempts to use Google translate with their essays. They write a narrative in Korean and translate it using Google translate. The resulting essay would not make sense since the translation was made word by word.
  2. With the four tests listed, I am more familiar with IELTS. I feel that it is the best English proficiency exam since it is what is required in UK, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. I am not familiar with language requirements in the US. Most Filipinos want to work/migrate/study in English speaking countries and passing the IELTS is a requirement. I am planning to take the test myself. The test has four sections: Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking. Each test you will be graded from 0 to 9 and they will accumulate your band score. Band 9 means you are an expert user, 8 is very good, 7
  3. Greeting everyone! I am really glad to join this forum. Learning a new language is very important. We learn more about a country, its people and their culture if we know how to speak their native language. I am really interested in learning in French and Spanish but I am concentrating on the first one. Hope you guys can recommend me any sites that offer free lessons and your experiences in learning a new language.
