Language Immersion for Chrome Teaches You a New Language While You Browse the Web


Chrome: Surrounding yourself as much as possible with a new language you want to learn is one of the keys to learning a new language quickly and fully. Language Immersion for Chrome gets you one step closer by switching select words on web pages into your target language.

When turned on, the extension automatically translates parts of the web page into one of 64 languages supported by Google Translate (except for Japanese, though). Novice, intermediate, and fluent level settings control how much of the page is translated (on fluent, for example, entire sentences are translated, while on novice, only a a few phrases per paragraph or page). Rolling over a translated word or phrase lets you hear it pronounced, and clicking the translation turns it back into English.

One of the best things about the extension is that you're learning new words while reading topics you're already interested in. Use it on web pages whose content you're quite familiar with (e.g., content you wrote or an article you've read more than once in English) and you'll be able to recognize the meaning of unfamiliar words very quickly. Even on unfamiliar pages, though, puzzling out the translations in the context of all the other English words is a great way to learn.

The translations aren't 100% accurate, so you'll need to take them with a grain of salt (for example, the translations might use the wrong gender or the more literal/formal versions of words and phrases). Still, the extension is a pretty awesome tool for building your vocabulary, learning pronunciation, and surrounding yourself with more reading material.

Ermm Sounds like a great idea but what good is it if the translations aren't accurate.  I would be inclined  to give it a try, picking up words here and there but still, if it isn't accurate it may end up being a big waste of time and effort.
