EdTech Recommendation (6:21) Toucan is a Chrome extension that helps you learn new languages as you browse the internet, without the need for flashcards or transition tools. It’s quite a genius tool; as you browse, Toucan will automatically translate certain words in the language that you’re trying to learn. So, let’s say most of an article is in English, but some words are in Spanish or French. When you hover over these words, you’ll see the transition and meaning. This way, you can learn new words in the language and the context of how they should be used in sentences. Toucan is free but limited to Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, and Italian.
