Edited by Grimm, Rushell, Eng

Hello and welcome to VisiHow. Today, we are going to show you how you can learn a foreign language on your iPhone 6 with the help of Google translate.


Steps

  1. 1
    To start with, a single button on the right side of your phone needs you to press it
    .

    Your phone will open up to the lock screen, where you will swipe across from left to right to bring up the number pad, where you can enter your pass-code
    .

    Alternatively, you can just press your finger at the bottom to use the fingerprint scanner
    .

  4. 4
    Either way will open up the Home screen of your phone
    .
    You are looking specifically for the Google Translate application. We have an entire series of videos devoted to using Google translate, and you can watch them by clicking any of the links corresponding to those videos. However, for our purposes, we're going to tap on Google Translate to open it.

    In this case, I'm going to use some of the functions that I showed you previously, so you can learn how to say words in foreign languages
    .
    First, let's switch over to English, putting it on the left side by pressing the small icon in the middle at the top of the screen.

  6. 6
    I'm going to cheat a little bit and use the voice, so I'll press on the microphone a little further down on the screen but still in the middle
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  7. 7
    After pressing the microphone, I will say, "Hello
    .
    How are you?" Those words should then appear on the screen.

  8. 8
    The translation will appear in the box on the lower half of the screen
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  9. 9
    You can then tap on the arrow facing to the right located directly across from the translation
    .

  10. 10
    This takes us to the Google area
    .

  11. 11
    Now, here's the cool part of how you learn a foreign language
    .
    We'll make sure my phone's volume is turned up nice and loud, so you can all be deafened by the wonder of this Google Translate girl's voice. We'll press the little speaker icon on the left-hand side of the screen just above the foreign translation, and you will hear the words pronounced.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    To hear it in English, press the speaker above the English words
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    Honestly, as a native English speaker, I don't think that sounds completely English, and I'm sure that the native Russian speakers would say the same thing
    .
    But it's enough that you can communicate. That's what's great about this. You can do that with just about any language out there. Let's do another example. We'll close the current window by pressing the x on the right side of the screen.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    What I'm going to do is delete the text we just added with our voice
    .
    Let's do Chinese. I click on where it says Russian at the top right. Then I'll scroll down on the list that comes up and find Chinese. Well, I saw Spanish first, so we'll just choose that one. Same situation.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    We click on the microphone again
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    Then say the same words, "hello, how are you?", and they will appear in the box at the top of the screen
    .
    The words in Spanish will appear in the box on the bottom half of the screen.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    Now we can say it in Spanish, and it will repeat back in English
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  18. 18
    Now, I'm using Google Voice to learn two languages
    .
    This is a great function of the Google Translate application, this voice functionality that enables you to learn languages. It's something that we will discuss in our business section, how to communicate with foreign business partners using Google translate in real time. Make sure you check that link to see our other video. I'm going to go ahead and press the Home button at the bottom of the phone to go back to the Home screen.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  19. 19
    Give two presses to the Home button, and you can slide any open applications up to close them
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  20. 20
    Now, we are back on the Home screen, and you may return to whatever it was you were doing on your phone
    .
    Thanks for choosing VisiHow. I look forward to seeing you in our other sets of videos. Have a great day.
