Learn a new language just by browsing the internet.
Toucan helps you learn a new language while you browse the web. No classes, flash cards or study sessions. Just sign up and go about your day like normal.
Latest release notes
➤ If you thought Toucan was awesome before, wait until you try this latest version. Now, after you learn a word, Toucan will now translate words next to ones you already know so you can learn how to use your new vocabulary in a sentence. The engineers keep saying this is a big deal and the rest of us want an excuse to eat cake. So woohoo!
How it works
➤ When you visit a website, Toucan automatically translates certain words and phrases on the page into the language you’re trying to learn. That way, you can learn words in your new language within the context of a language you’re already comfortable with.
And more are on the way!

*************** YOUR PRIVACY IS TOUCAN’S TOP PRIORITY ***************
When you add Toucan, it says that we can “read and change all your data on the websites you visit.” That’s only partially true. A more accurate description is that it allows Toucan to translate the words you see on a webpage into the language you’re trying to learn. While we’re sure you’re a super interesting person, we do not have any interest in tracking what you search for or what you buy. It’s just not our thing.
