MIT News: Learn a language while you wait for WiFi

MIT News: Learn a language while you wait for WiFi. “Hyper-connectivity has changed the way we communicate, wait, and productively use our time. Even in a world of 5G wireless and ‘instant’ messaging, there are countless moments throughout the day when we’re waiting for messages, texts, and Snapchats to refresh. But our frustrations with waiting a few extra seconds for our emails to push through doesn’t mean we have to simply stand by. To help us make the most of these ‘micro-moments,’ researchers from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) have developed a series of apps called ‘WaitSuite’ that test you on vocabulary words during idle moments, like when you’re waiting for an instant message or for your phone to connect to WiFi.”
