This article was a great article because I really enjoy modern day technology as much as the next teen does. Especially one as unique as this. This article relates to our chapter of language because it is based on a learning tool teaching people new languages. Like we discussed in class language is something you take everywhere with you it is your luggage. With learning a new language while living in a different place or coming from a different place it can lead to the diffusion of languages as discussed in the book.
