There is this great new Chrome Plugin, Language Immersion. I love it. You can select a language, set your level of difficulty and as you go about your normal web surfing, it inserts words from that language. If you are stumped by the word, simply click it, and it will reveal the English. It’s a great way to increase your vocabulary in your language of choice, while you go about your normal activity on the web.
Language Immersion for Chrome is an experimental extension that aims to simulate the experience of being immersed in a foreign language. By switching certain words and phrases from English into a language of your choice, the websites you already visit can provide a way to experience the world from a different perspective.
- Choose from all 64 languages currently supported by Google Translate.
- Novice-to-fluent skill settings let you immerse at your own pace.
- Click on a translated word to switch it back to English.
- Roll-over a translated word to hear it pronounced.
Note: Language Immersion for Chrome is very much an experiment. That means the translations won’t always be 100% accurate, and it probably won’t turn you into a language genius overnight. That being said, we think it’s pretty cool to be able see the web from a different perspective, and we’re excited for everyone to give it a try.
