How can you learn Spanish while using Google.Com?

Besides being a search engine and therefore a portal to Spanish language related websites, Google has its very own tool to improve your language skills online.

Google Define

This handy little tool lets you define any word you choose in a moment of seconds, providing numerous definitions plus the definition’s original URL site.

Here’s how it works:

Just type in your toolbar or main Google search screen the word “define:” followed by a word, then press search.  What will appear is a list of definitions of that word from a myriad of resources.

This can be a great tool for those who are writing in Spanish, wanting to learn new words, investigate words they have read, or want to just simply expand on their vocabulary. Words will be given to you in the same language that you have input, so keep in mind that this is not a dictionary, it is a word reference tool that will define words for you in the same language.
