If, like many people, you enjoy binge-watching Netflix movies and series, then the Language Learning With Netflix extension for the Chrome Browser might interest you.

It's not without issues however, and is overpriced for what it is.

Depth: This is 'content' richness. How comprehensive is Language Learning With Netflix and does it take you far in terms of levels, or is it more suited to low level/tourist learners?
Uniqueness: Is Language Learning With Netflix innovative or is it just an imitation? Does it have a unique selling proposition (USP) that makes it stand out among competitors?
Quality: Overall product quality indicator that covers everything from video/dialogue clarity, authenticity, explanations, and effectiveness.
Cost: Is Language Learning With Netflix acceptably priced and how does its pricing compare to market competition?

Today I just want to highlight a useful resource for any language learner who enjoys watching Netflix.

Why not make your couch potato time a little productive? 😊

Language Learning With Netflix is a popular extension for the Chrome browser (major drawback for those of us who don’t like Chrome).

What it basically does it add an ‘overlay’ over the Netflix video, so you can interact with the subtitles. This essentially turns Netflix into something similar to Yabla or FluentU.

There’s a freemium option which gives you basic functionality, but if you want to take advantage of the better features like saving words/progress, better translations and so on, you need to pay for the premium subscription.

This, in my opinion, is overpriced.

You’d actually be better off signing up for Yabla or FluentU (if your language is offered) and getting a more robust, feature-rich learning experience.

But overall, Language Learning With Netflix is a clever idea and a decent way to make your relax time productive.
