Using Google's "search completion" function

Postby Kraut » Mon Jun 21, 2021 11:57 am

When I search with "superar tu miedo" Google will suggest "completions", that is adding more words from its data base to the original search. Often this is an excellent source for consolidating new vocabulary or a grammar item.
Unfortunately it is not always as good as in the example.

You can also run into the problem of getting suggestions in Portuguese or Italian when you try Spanish words, because the word you entered is written the same in those other languages. :D

I definitely use Google's autocompletion to remember terms or expressions sometimes.
