Learn a New Language While You Wait for Computing Tasks to Complete

What if you could harness all of those moments you spend waiting for computing tasks to complete and do something constructive with them?

A new set of apps from MIT, called WaitSuite, embeds language learning into existing computing tasks so that you can learn a language while you wait around. These wait moments may not be lengthy, but strung together throughout the day you can now do something useful with the stolen time.

Full announcement: Learn a language while you wait for WiFi

The apps integrate with email and web browsers to harness those micro-moments. Get it here: http://people.csail.mit.edu/ccai/waitchatter/

Currently, its only provided as a plug-in for the Chrome web browser and supports learning Spanish and French, with English assumed as the primary language.
