Improve your skills on your own, effectively and enjoyably, by watching films and series in the language you study.
Netflix can be a great study resource for intermediate and advanced learners, but there are some difficulties (poor subs, no translations, dialogues go by too quickly etc.). This chrome extension gives you superpowers over Netflix that makes learning with films/series more effective and enjoyable. After installation, you will have an additional panel with language learning features when you watch videos on the Netflix website.
• Subtitles are presented simultaneously with a translation. By comparing the translation with the original audio and text, you can assimilate a great deal in a short amount of time. Choose between human and machine translations, or show both.
• The extension gives you enhanced control over playback, allowing you to step through sentences one at a time, and digest phrases at your own pace. Optionally slow down dialogue to x0.80.
• Build your listening comprehension with hundreds of hours of authentic language in context.
• The extension tells you which words are important words for you to learn, and which words can be set aside for later. There's also a pop-up dictionary.
Netflix offers a wide variety of programs for studying major languages (Danish, Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Norwegian, Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish), and a smaller, but still useful selection for less widely spoken languages.
Check our special catalogue ( languagelearningwithnetflix.com/catalogue.html ) to find films and series in the language you study with high-quality subtitles. We generate translations in your language that follow these subtitles closely in meaning, although they may occasionally be imperfect. Using our extension with other titles, especially dubbed titles, may give poor results.
The pop-up dictionary doesn't currently work with certain languages (Chinese, Japanese, Korean..). Check back soon!
Our extension runs on Google Chrome on desktop and laptop computers running Windows and MacOS. We aren't testing on Chrome OS and Linux currently. Tablets and smartphones are not supported currently. You need an active Netflix subscription to use our extension.
