Learn a new language while you surf


Although there are plenty of apps and resources where you can go to study a new language, it’s easy to forget to make the effort to open them. The Toucan extension hangs out with you while you surf and randomly translates words on the page to the language you want to learn.

Well, the process is not quite random because Toucan knows your language level and chooses words and phrases that help you level up without having to make a conscious effort to start a lesson.

Toucan made a big splash on Google and Product Hunt (Page X) when it launched in the spring of 2021. It’s free for the basic level or about five bucks a month for more language training and games. And the little toucan mascot is adorable.
