Google has announced the addition of language learning tools to the Google Search page for Android users. This feature is currently available in Argentina, Colombia, India (for Hindi speakers), Indonesia, Mexico, and Venezuela, with more countries to be added in the future.
Previously, Google Search already offered assistance with the English language, such as translation, word definitions, and vocabulary assistance. However, Google has now introduced new tools for English language speaking practice and personalized feedback.
The English language speaking practice lessons take about 3-5 minutes per day. These lessons include question prompts and provide vocabulary for constructing response sentences. The system scores the correctness of the responses, grammar usage, and also offers alternative sentence suggestions.
Google mentions that this language teaching feature is part of utilizing AI technology in its services. Implementing this AI technology into Google Search presents a challenge in creating learning modules suitable for users at different language proficiency levels.
TLDR: Google has added language learning tools to the Google Search page for Android users. This new feature currently supports English language speaking practice and personalized feedback in select countries. Users can engage in short daily lessons and receive AI-generated scores and suggestions for improvement. However, creating effective learning modules for users of various language proficiency levels remains a challenge.
