1. Language Learning with Netflix
Language Learning with Netflix (LLN) is one of the most complete extensions for this purpose. The tool displays two subtitles at the same time, one Netflix official in the user's native language, and one subtitle in the language they wish to study. The functionality allows the comparison of writing between the two languages as well as the learning of new words.
It is also possible to control the speed at which subtitles are displayed, as well as automatically pause the video after a speech, so that the user has time to read the spoken sentence. Less commonly used words within the language are spelled out so that they can be studied later more calmly, thereby increasing their vocabulary.
