iTranslate is an effective language translation app for communicating with ESL students. You type what you want to say, and the app translates English to the student’s native language. Students can also speak into the iPad and iTranlsate records what the student says. The app translates the student’s native language into English. I found this method to be less effective because iTranslate does not accurately record what the student says, even when the student is speaking slowly and clearly. Despite this flaw, I still highly recommend iTranslate for ESL and classroom teachers who need to communicate with their English language learners.
iTranslate is also helpful for English language learners for learning new vocabulary words and grammar structures.
