Nowadays the technology is progressing too fast in any aspect, even in schools. Except the teachers also the learners use the smart phones for their different purposes. A phenomenon is also the Google translate, which the students use the most for their English classes. As a teacher in a primary school we faced with this ‘problem’ if we can call it so. We saw many students using the GT for translating the whole texts from the book and gave it to me without telling me that they used the help of Google translate. So after reading their works we realized that all of them wrote the same text. So now the aim of this study is to explore the students’ purposes of the use of Google translate, attitudes, behaviors and teachers’ assessment for the Google translated texts. This study will help us to know how much do the students’ use the Google translate, how do they use it, if they translate only words in there or a whole text. On the other hand we will know about the teachers on that how do they expect and react the Google translated texts and how they assess those texts, if they give any advises on how to use it or they just give negative grades about that.

Keywords: Technology, Smartphones, Google Translate, Texts, Assessment, etc.
