Toucan is a new, immersive way to learn while you go about your daily life. Learning a new language is challenging, fun, and rewarding. It also takes time, practice, and dedication - finding a few extra minutes in the day can feel impossible. At Toucan, we know creating a new habit is one of the most difficult things to do. Our Founding team has a deep understanding and appreciation for human habits, behavior, and the science of learning. Our free Chrome extension helps you learn without having to put aside time to create a new habit. Toucan works by immersing you in the language while you're browsing the web. What's even better is that you'll see those words in the context of sentences - helping your brain connect the word to its useful meaning. We created Toucan to help people make more use of their time, without missing out on the fun and satisfaction of learning a new language. We hope you enjoy learning with Toucan as much as we do! The Toucan Team, Taylor, Brandon, and Shaun

This is a super clever way to learn a language in context — using content that you're already motivated to consume. And I love the business model (or part of it)...! Anyone can sponsor a word. Guess which #word I sponsored? 😁

I've been using the extension for a few weeks now and it works great. The only thing I wish is that there was Russian. I have been using it for German and it is definitely helping to retain words. I would love to use it for Russian also. My wife and her family are all Russian and I have been trying to learn so that I can communicate with her family. It's hard and having that extra exposure is crucial in retaining words.
