This Chrome extension lets you learn a new language by watching Netflix
01 Learning a new language through immersion doesn’t mean you have to pack your bags and
02 move to Europe for three months. Now, you just need to turn __ Netflix. Language Learning with
03 Netflix is a Chrome extension that lets you watch shows with two subtitles on __ the same time
04 so you can visually pair translations with dialogue and learn some new vocabulary in the process.
05 Its a clever service that makes use of Netflix’s massive catalogue and all of the major languages
06 in which it already offers subtitles, including Danish, Dutch, English, French, German, Italian,
07 Norwegian, Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish, and Turkish.
08 The extension was created by developers David Wilkinson and Ognjen Apic who experimented
09 with making their own language learning software before collaborating on Language Learning with
10 Netflix. “For some languages (Farsi, for example), there’s only a limited amount of learning
11 materials available”, Wilkinson said in an email. “I think a lot of people would enjoy studying a
12 language with material they are already familiar with”.
13 The tool works best as a supplement for people who already have some basic understanding
14 of the language they’re learning. There’s a vocabulary-highlighting feature that greys out less
15 common words, which is adjustable to match your vocabulary level. Hovering over a word
16 produces a pop-up dictionary, and clicking the word lets you hear it. You can also slow down the
17 dialogue or automatically pause playback at the end of every subtitle, so you can learn line by
18 line. There’s even a catalogue of recommendations for movies and shows that are good to study.
19 The Chrome extension is free to use, but Wilkinson and Apic’s product is expected to have
20 more features, like additional subtitles __ dubbed dialogue, which would only be available for paid
21 users. “Netflix has alternative audio tracks for many well-known series, but the subtitles in other
22 languages don’t match the audio”, Wilkinson said. “We’re considering creating new subtitles for
23 these alternative audio tracks, so you could study German, for example, with Breaking Bad with
24 matching German audio and subtitles”.
25 One of the few downsides is that the tool only works on Google Chrome, so you can’t use it
26 with your Netflix app on tablets or streaming services like Roku or Apple TV. Hopefully, the service
27 can make it’s way beyond browsers soon because it’s obvious that the potential __ language
28 learning through media is huge. Viki, a streaming service for Asian dramas, implemented a “Learn
29 Mode” in 2017 that essentially does the same thing by showing two subtitles at once. The
30 developers say they haven’t contacted Netflix yet, but “the project could likely go faster and
31 further with their support”.
