  • (2021-04-12) Alanís de Paz: You get a funny feeling every time a foreign word randomly pops up and you are bound to remember it next time you see it.
  • (2021-04-12) Anna Clay: Absolutely love this extension. I'm picking up Italian vocabulary so quickly.
  • (2021-04-09) Andre Bolton: A wonderful little tool to help with learning a new language. I am using it to relearn German and just browsing the internet I am picking up on many words I never new before, all for free which is great. Being able to see progress is good to see as well!
  • (2021-04-08) S Wang: my child learning Korean now! i am so happy! i really love this because it is helping my child learn
  • (2021-04-07) Jack Morris: This is an incredible app! It is perfect and very well made - even when you copy and paste text you don't get the words in the foregin language, it pastes the original text. Perhaps it might be nice to see a history of how many words you have reviewed/learnt on the dashboard. Heard about it from Sam Parr and his podcast. Amazing!
  • (2021-04-07) Aryan Hossain: To say in one go, this extension is just mind-blowing!!! Thank you @Toucan for making the German language easy to learn 🥰....
  • (2021-04-07) Sharkbait Plays: This is AMAZING I am currently learning french and TOUCAN has really helped me. Thank you Toucan!!
  • (2021-04-06) Laurence McMulkin: Ingenious extension for daily, subtle learning. Simple and user-friendly!
  • (2021-04-06) Matin Hosseini: I have used a bunch of extensions to improve my german and can say: Das ist sehr praktisch
  • (2021-04-05) Sara Darara: Very helpful for learning new vocabulary in a non-stressful way!
  • (2021-04-05) Eric Petersen: this is by far the best way to learn another language!
  • (2021-04-03) JoJo: As someone who creates chrome extensions myself. I am jealous. I wish I had the idea first xD Simply Genius. Can I maybe invest in the company?
  • (2021-04-02) Jack Rivlin: I absolutely love Toucan! Heard about it from Sam Parr's podcast and immediately got the extension. It's rare you find something where you love the idea and the result really delivers on it. It's so perfect for me as I'm mainly trying to work on Spanish vocabulary. Really enjoying it so far and I can already feel the benefits.
  • (2021-04-01) Alyssa Chua: Toucan is a great Google Chrome extension for those of us who are busy with work or study and other things, but don't want to give up learning a language. I love it because even while you're reading articles, e-mails, and chats, you can see words from the language you're learning pop up, helping you memorise the different words or phrases so you can incorporate a little learning no matter what you're doing. I recommend this 100%!
  • (2021-03-31) khanh le tu hoang: HMM, i think this extension is okay but there is a problem. I couldn't find Japanese on the first time. And then I tried to recommend Japanese but couldn't find it. I had uninstalled it and reinstalled but still that problem, i have to choose 1 random(Spanish) and after that i can change to Japanese. You should make it easier to choose Japanese.
  • (2021-03-31) Isaak Hartley Richards: Excellent idea! Would recommend to anyone
  • (2021-03-30) Andrew Sherman: I Love this app I have never been able to pick up any language at all but now that I have this app I know enough Spanish to have a regular conversation with my freinds
  • (2021-03-29) Danny Gibson: I'm impressed how quickly the words I know "fit" into what I'm reading in Chrome, and -- when it gets to difficult to follow what I'm reading -- how easily I can restore to my first language.
  • (2021-03-29) Anam P: ITS THE WORST- Just kidding 🤣 Its the MOST helpful thing in the WORLD!!! Now i can talk to my Spanish friends!!!!!!!!
  • (2021-03-26) Trevor Lynn: Total game changer for language learning and I highly highly recommend giving it a try. This is the absolute easiest way for me to learn a language. Toucan integrates learning into my daily life without even trying. It's INCREDIBLE.
  • (2021-03-26) Earth-Chan UwU: I want Vietnamese coming soon I can't wait
  • (2021-03-25) Betelgeuse: I love it, it's the best tool to learning a new language on the internet. Immersion has always been the best way to learn a language, and this tool makes it easier for you to immerse yourself into your target language! I just hope that as this extension expand, the free features also expand, because most of us can't pay for an extension... as for now it's perfect nothing to complain! Keep up the great work, lads!
  • (2021-03-24) Aliza Zauderer: Such a genius concept! Loving it!
  • (2021-03-24) Nicolás Rivas: It's great, tried it for a few days and it really feels like you learn a bit every day, constantly. In my opinion that's the only way to learn a lenguage. Very simple to use and beautiful app. Can't wait for new features. Tackling the translation of whole sentences would be great as it will definitely increase accuracy.
  • (2021-03-21) Blu Designs: Great idea bad execution I hate that I can't turn it off on specific sites without singing up. I'm not trying to learn french while looking for how to return an item before the dead line.
  • (2021-03-20) Trixxie Land: This extension has helped me learn Spanish! I am learning every day! I am thrilled that you are keeping the words we already learned on the page. Would it be possible to change that color to another color? That way we aren't going back to it, and saying, "I know that" to words we already know. In time, our pages will slowly move toward the color of the learned words, and BOY OH BOY, THAT will be a wonderful feeling. Instagram is a problem for me. The words are changed to Spanish, and highlighted, but I cannot mouse over. So, I cannot read the English, nor interact with the word(s) at all. I've tried clicking on the highlighted Spanish word, as well, but there is no response. Thanks for making this great product! I'm looking forward to all your improvements!
  • (2021-03-20) Depth King: I tried to find Japanese on it, but it doesn't seem to be anywhere, despite being advertised as one of the languages Toucan supports. Gave it a shot with German though, and it was absolutely great! Would love there to be Japanese as well.
  • (2021-03-18) Kaleo Wilchcombe: This extension is literally one of if not the best extensions that I've added to Chrome. It superceeded my expectations in terms of providing an environment for learning a new language while also allowing me to remain comfortable, going at my own pace in order to truly understand what I'm learning. For anyone wondering if they should get this, DO IT! I absolutely love this extension and am more than thankful to Taylor for sharing it with us.
  • (2021-03-17) layan Hussain: thx so much I learn many words to use it everyday but I don't learn many words like only if I subscribe and I don't want to subscribe so can you put more words but this app is the best app and very good app thx again
  • (2021-03-16) Esteban Lara: Sehr gut, hilfreich und praktisch!
  • (2021-03-15) Elektik Playz: It is an essential component of your language learning journey.
  • (2021-03-13) Asha Daryanani: Such a helpful extension!! I love browsing with it and seeing it evolve :)
  • (2021-03-12) Maia Haritonov: The best app I've tried. I highly recommend it to all my friends that want to learn a language. One of the kind, and helps you learn a language smart not hard!
  • (2021-03-10) Peter Bacon: It seems like a good piece of software. I found it by being redirected from Dark Readers website. As you install it, it they make it seem like it's donationware, but after it's all installed, boom, just another limited free version of a paid subscription service. I don't care how good the software is, I'm not paying a monthly fee for a browser extension. Free alternatives stacked on top of the dozens of other ways to learn a language? I'll pass for now. Seems like the developers are striving to improve the language processing and translation accuracy, so I'll keep an eye out to see how it improves. I'm just not a fan of this payment model. Thanks though.
  • (2021-03-10) Monika: Innovative browser extension, made cleverly, like nothing I've ever seen before - would most definitely recommend.
  • (2021-03-10) Mohammad Onais Nadeem: Finally I can get better at French specially with premium
  • (2021-03-08) botastástico 123: help yo can't parar speaking español .-.
  • (2021-03-08) Sofiya I: LOVE IT! It has been helping me expand my vocaulary with Spanish and I really like the aesthetics of it, including several options that you get to customize like how many words you want to be translated. to add on, Taylor Nieman, CEO, is really nice and welcomed me into the Toucan community with love and joy so I would sya 11/10 on customer service :)
  • (2021-03-07) L T: Very subtle and nonintrusive way to immerse yourself slowly, one toe at a time, until before you realise it, you're swimming in the vocabulary of your language of choice!
  • (2021-03-07) Jonathan Samuel R: My fav. extension now I'm learning Japanese and Korean.[>_<] this is the best one.
  • (2021-03-07) SL Gamer YT: I am amazed with this app..thanks who created this awesome extension...Finally I am learning French =D
  • (2021-03-07) antintin: Works very consistently, is fast, looks good, but the privacy policy is rather questionable.... The extension could collect every piece of data from every website you visit under the parameters of its privacy policy.
  • (2021-03-06) oikawa: I've had this extension for a few weeks now. Absolutely the easiest way to learn vocabulary. The way the vocab shows up is not bothersome, and the extra features that come along with this extension makes it even more worthwhile. The mini games are fun, and the pronunciation option for every word sounds a lot better than most that I've come across with other apps/extensions. Really no complaints here, I will be planning to use this for a long time!
  • (2021-03-05) John Hansbrough: I love this extension and it's my favorite one over the past year. I use it every day and I'm excited to know that it's helping me learn a language in a passive way. This is a great supplement if you are actively learning a language or if you want to get some reps on one. Check this out and enjoy!
  • (2021-03-04) Leon Butcher: Appreciate this app. Is there any way to disable the progress popup? I'd rather check it on my own when I care to as it can be annoying when I'm working.
  • (2021-03-04) dele: I really like how simple Toucan is, It really just makes life easy when it comes to vocabulary learning. It just integrates itself seamlessly in chrome and does the job it is supposed to do. I definitely recommend it to anyone learning a foreign language. Thank you guys for your amazing work!
  • (2021-03-03) Mel Larsen: I am really enjoying having an easy way to learn vocabulary during my time online. It's an elegant combination of unobtrusive as I work but simple to access when I want to engage. Also, the cute animations & games/easter eggs are a lot of fun.
  • (2021-03-03) Dbile GeSui: I wanted to try this app but I encounter "An unexpected error has occurred." every time I try to log in.
  • (2021-03-03) Sehee: Love love love this extension! Such a fun way to sprinkle language learning into my daily life. I've had the extension for a few months now, and loved seeing the number of languages offered being expanded. Also appreciate that you can keep track of how many words you've learned--it helps me stay motivated and challenge myself. All the kudos to Toucan!
