Why is learning a new language so hard?
There are many roadblocks. Finding time to practice, boring learning material, repetitiveness, finding someone to practice with, and more.
It’s active intellectual labor and many of us already have lots of things to do.
While there’s no universal solution to language learning, there are interesting solutions that have emerged recently that may help you finally learn a new language.
Last week, Ara Ghougassian launched Fluent
, a Chrome extension that automatically translates words on websites.
Here are some initial reactions from the Product Hunt community:
“Used fluent for the last few weeks. The experience so far has been flawless and totally fun.”

“I've been using the Beta since May, and it's been great. I've already picked up new French vocab and I'm really liking the features around testing comprehension without being invasive on the screen.”
– Stefan Palios
“Unlike other conventional language learning apps on the market, Fluent doesn't take any extra time out of your day, but instead integrates language learning into your regular web browsing time!”
