    I start learning a new language, and (of course) need a dictionary.

    What are the differences between using google translate and a dictionary app?

    The advantages/ disadvantages of each solution?

    A dictionary lists the common usages of a word - in the language of that word. IOW, a French dictionary lists the French word and, in French, the common uses.

    Google Translate, if you give it a single word, translates the most common usage into your language.

    Using a dictionary, and putting the entire entry into a translator program like Google Translate, might be a good combination of both techniques.
