Lingua.ly Is A Useful Tool For Second-Language Learners

Lingua.ly is an innovative free Chrome extension to help people learn English, Spanish, English, French, Hebrew and Arabic. After installation and choosing your present language and the one you want to learn, you can click on any unfamiliar word on any website and you’ll be shown it’s definition in your first language, along audio on how it’s pronounced.

That works well, but isn’t that innovative — there are a number of similar tools.

However, it then goes a step further. It saves the words you have clicked on and allows you take quizzes and review them.

I think English Language Learners are going to find Lingua.ly very helpful.

I’ve embedded a video about it below:

Thanks to TechCrunch for the tip.

I’m adding the site to The Best Websites For Intermediate Readers.
