My name is Josh. I’m a travel blogger and speak 3 languages (English, Spanish and Mandarin).
As a frequent explorer, I’m always looking for ways to enhance the efficiency of my travels and recently I’ve been noticing a rising popularity in portable translation devices that offer 2-way translation in multiple languages, WiFi hotspot worldwide and many more.
The interesting little tools I see online, such as the Langogo AI from Indiegogo, seem to be able to solve a lot of problems with language barriers and locating destinations when abroad.
I’m all for trying new things but would just like to get an idea from anyone with experience using these translation devices, and whether they truly superior to apps such as Google translate?

Hello, people. This is my first post on this forum. Please bear with me; I am currently 21 years old and from Norway. I have had German in school for a total of 6 years, and I am way above the expected level. I have already passed both a C1-course from the Goethe-Institute as well as a DSH-test from a German university with the grade of DSH-3 (top grade). Now my ''problem'' is the following; I really want to study medicine. And I really want to study medicine in Germany. I have quite good grades from High School, but I still need to add a few subjects to be able to apply for Medical School in Germany. So I have decided to enlist in the norwegian army. This enlistment will allow me to pursue the subjects I need, BUT; and this is basically the whole point of the thread; I wont be able to start medical school and thus move to Germany before after five years (Which means I'll be 26-27 when I move there). This petrifies me, as I am afraid that I won't have the same ability to learn German and properly immerse at that age as opposed to now. I really like Germany, so I would seriously consider to stay there , but I would like to learn the language as good and fluent/perfect as possible. Is this even possible at that age?
I am not looking for motivational ''you can do ANYTHING!! :)'' kind of speeches, but more objective answers from experiemantal and/or''scientific'' points of view; please be realistic. And of course - in situations of uncertainty, like these, nothing is better than a story of success!
Thank you in advance!
