TIL: Chrome Language Immersion

Ok, this is just SICK.

You can now add an extension to Google’s Chrome browser that helps you learn a language as you browse.

It’s brilliant. Amazing. And another truly remarkable FREE learning tool.

You pick a language. You pick one of three immersion levels: novice, intermediate, fluent.

Then as you browse the web you notice, depending on the level you chose, snippets of text appear in the language you chose to study. They’re lightly highlighted.

And guess what happens if you click on the highlighted text? Yep – it reverts to English!

Wait, there’s more! Guess what happens when you mouse over the highlighted text? Yes, you HEAR its pronunciation!

Madonna! Mon Dieu! Du lieber Himmel!
