Did your kids manage to talk you into allowing the creepy German foreign exchange student into your house for the semester? Worried that his Deutsch mumbling that sounds so sincere is actually him telling you to go suck on a bratwurst? You can find some comfort in the process now using Google Translate that just introduced 14 new languages to its Conversation Mode, including German, French, Italian and Japanese.
All you have to do is choose the languages on your phone that you plan to speak to your foreign friend in, tell him to wash his lederhosen and then pass the phone so he can hear it in his native language. He can then return the conversation to you with Google Translate doing all of the work. Who needs Rosetta Stone?
